Description for Radish Imp. Scarlet Red Globe

The radish (Raphanus sativus) is an edible root vegetable of the Brassicaceae family that was domesticated in Europe in pre-Roman times. They are grown and consumed throughout the world. Radishes have numerous varieties, varying in size, colour and duration of required cultivation time.

There are some radishes that are grown for their seeds; oilseed radishes are grown, as the name implies, for oil production. Radish can sprout from seed to small plant in as little as 3 days.

Also known as spring radishes, summer radishes, winter radishes, Oriental radishes, Daikon, Japanese radishes, Chinese radishes, Raphanus sativus

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
spring radishes, summer radishes, winter radishes, Oriental radishes, Daikon, Japanese radishes, Chinese radishes - Spring and the fall Height: 0.5 to 1.5 feet Spread: 0.5 to 0.75 feet Easy

Planting and care

Sow daikon radish seeds about an inch deep and 2 inches apart (or follow instructions on your seed packet) in your freshly prepared garden bed. Thin seedlings to about 6 inches apart once they are 2 inches tall. Space rows about 2 feet apart. Sow new seeds every two weeks for a successive crop.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full sun, part shade, Yields best in full sun. Requires well-drained soil, loose soil, high in organic matter, free from stones, with pH 5.8 to 6.8. Needs plentiful, consistent moisture. Water your daikon radishes regularly during dry weather. Try to keep the soil moist. Give them a good long soak as soon as the top of the soil dries out. Avoid over-watering. The soil should never be soggy. If roots are left to sit in too much water they are prone to rot. Germination temperature: 55 F to 85 F Daikon radishes should not need much feeding if planted in fertile soil. However, they may benefit from a dressing of compost tea a couple of times throughout the growing season. Avoid fertilizers that are high in nitrogen. They help to produce lush leaves but poor vegetables.

  • The bulb of the radish is usually eaten raw, although tougher specimens can be steamed.
  • The raw flesh has a crisp texture and a pungent, peppery flavor, caused by glucosinolates and the enzyme myrosinase which combine when chewed to form allyl isothiocyanates, also present in mustard, horseradish, and wasabi.

  • Cancer Prevention: Radishes are part of the Brassica family, otherwise known as cruciferous vegetables. Research suggests that the antioxidants and other compounds in cruciferous vegetables help in the prevention of cancer. In addition, radishes are high in fibre, which helps fight colon cancer, while compounds known as isothiocyanates affect genetic pathways in cancer cells, even inducing apoptosis (cancer cell death).
  • Detoxification: Radishes are believed to be a useful treatment for jaundice because they may help to purify the blood and raise oxygen levels.
  • Digestive Health: Radishes stimulate the production of bile. Maintaining a healthy level of bile production is beneficial for digestion, as well as liver and gallbladder health. Additionally, radishes can be used to treat constipation, because they are very high in fiber.
  • Diuretic: Diuretic in nature, radishes help with kidney and liver function and may be beneficial in the treatment of urinary disorders.
  • Heart Health: Studies have found that the antioxidants in radishes may reduce cholesterol levels in the body, which in turn will lower the risk of heart disease and heart attack. The fibre, vitamins and minerals in radishes make them a smart choice for cardiovascular health. They have been shown to regulate blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

Smashed raw radish is a very good cleanser and serves as a very efficient face pack. Due to its disinfectant properties, radish also helps cure skin disorders, such as drying up, rashes, cracks etc. and also refreshes it.
