Growing Spanish Black Radish Vegetables from Seed

  • If growing outdoors, sow from early spring all the way through to the beginning of winter. For a more controlled germination, start in seed trays, to be transplanted later on.
  • Sow around 1/2″ deep in fresh compost, or well worked garden soil. Place/sow in an area which receives full sunlight. If the soil begins try dry out, well water as germination will not occur in dry conditions.
  • Under optimal conditions, germination should take around one week. If starting in seed trays or small pots, wait until seedlings have emerged before transplanting outdoors.
  • Ensure a spacing of at least 4-5″ between plants outdoors, this will allow sufficient space for each radish to draw nutrients. Great in rows in allotments or vegetable patches.
  • Harvest black radishes after 50-60 days for ideal flesh flavour. Radishes left to grow on longer, will become less sweet and slightly more spicy.
