How to Grow Red Meat Chinese Radishes
Make sure your soil is loose before planting by breaking it up with a gardening fork and mixing in sand if needed. Sow 1 seed a quarter inch deep, one inch apart in rows that are 6 to 12 inches apart. Thin seedlings to one every 4 inches once they have germinated. Water consistently to keep the soil moist and prevent roots from cracking. Fertilize as needed. Please note that these radishes should only be sown in late summer, not spring.
Harvesting Chinese Radishes
Chinese radishes should be harvested as soon as they are mature to make sure they have the best flavor. Since Red Meat radishes are round and large, you will have the best luck digging them up with a hoe, shovel, or gardening fork. Remove the tops and store them in a cold place. They will stay fresh for several weeks!
Save your radish tops and store them in the fridge as well! They are great in many recipes as Chinese radishes have particularly delicious tops.
Kids will love these radishes for their fun color and sweet taste! If your kids have a hard time with the spicy bite, try caramelizing or roasting the radishes with sugar to make a special treat. Looking for a more savory dish? Pickle them for a tasty side dish, or make a stir-fry with the radish tops!
Tips From Our Gardeners
"If you have some small empty areas in your garden, I would recommend planting radishes. They are easy to take care of and can even draw pests away from other plants! Plus, I love a good winter radish."
- Katie Robinson, True Leaf Market Writer and Horticulture Student
Well-drained soil with a pH range of 5.8-6.8 and a high level of organic matter.
Pests and Disease:
Root pests, such as cabbage loopers or root maggots are the primary concern with radishes. Watch for signs of an infestation and treat early. Avoid planting where other Brassica crops were grown recently to avoid diseases.
