Radishes, like lettuces, were regularly grown in the Monticello Kitchen Garden for use in salads. The two crops were often sown together beginning in early March through August. Jefferson preferred the scarlet radish, although his garden included salmon, rose, violet, and white types. China Rose Winter Radish forms an elongated root with bright rose-colored skin and firm flesh.
Best planted in late summer, especially in hotter climates. Sow one-quarter inch deep in well-prepared garden loam in full sun.
Approximately 60-70 seeds per pack.
