Forget those tiny half-bite radishes, and grow some you can really get your teeth into! And if you think these are big, you should have seen those we dug up the day before!
This the German salad radish, Raphanus sativus 'Ostergruss Rosa'. Not only superb in salads, but the perfect nibble to go with your glass of beer.
We've been growing these for a couple of years now, and they really are delicious. Fast and easy to grow, they're always the first spring veg we harvest, along with early salad leaves. In a few days, we'll be sowing again for a summer crop. If you haven't grown them before, give them a try - you won't be disappointed!
