Description

Radishes, like lettuces, were regularly grown in the Monticello vegetable garden for use in salads.  The two crops were often sown together beginning in early March.  Thomas Jefferson preferred the scarlet radish, although his garden also included salmon, rose, violet, and white types.  The Early Scarlet Globe Radish is a 19th-century variety noted for its bright scarlet skin, crisp white flesh, and mild flavor.

Direct sow seeds in spring and fall in well-prepared garden loam.  Radishes grow quickly; sow seeds every 2-3 weeks for a continuous harvest.  Approximately 60-70 seeds per packet.
