Radish 'Flamboyant 3'

Raphanus sativus

Enjoy the refreshing, crisp and clean flavour of Radish 'Flamboyant 3'. These cylindrical roots have attractive rose red skins with pure white tips that make a lovely addition to summer salads. Sow this RHS AGM variety regularly for ongoing crops of tasty roots throughout summer. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 10cm (4").

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.


Companion planting: Try growing radishes with mint to deter flea beetles, which chew irregular holes in the leaves.

Radishes grow well in most soils, but prefer rich, moist free draining soils. Sow seeds at regular intervals from March-August into well cultivated soil. Sow seeds very thinly 1cm (0.5in) deep in drills 15cm (6in) apart.

Thin out seedlings to 3-5cm (1-2in) apart. Water during dry spells.

For summer sowings choose a moist cool spot to prevent running to seed. As radishes grow so fast and use less of the soil goodness, use them totally as a catch crop with other slower-maturing produce. Harvest as soon as the roots reach reasonable size, if left too long they will become hot and woody.
