Rat Tail Radish

45-50 days Not a root-producing variety, the Rat Tail Radish is inelegantly named for its slender, 4" to 12" long, edible seed pods. Rat Tail produces loads of pods, which are hot, spicy and pungent: the dark purple pods are spicier yet! Direct-sow Rat Tail Radishes as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring~stake the plants for support. Harvest pencil-thin while young and tender. An attention-grabbing garnish, the Rat Tail Radish can be used raw, cooked or pickled. (OP.)

  • Information
  • Radishes are a favorite seed to sow as soon as the soil can be worked in spring. They grow easily and rapidly in cool weather. Moderately fertile soil is fine, amended lightly with manure and/or compost. Too much fertilizer causes heavy top growth and stunted roots. Seed in small rows or broadcast, covering lightly with soil. Tamp down lightly, and water. Sow every 7 to 14 days for a steady supply. The key to crisp, mild Radishes is regular watering and weeding. Thin carefully when Radishes are about 2" tall. Harvest small for mildest flavor and crispy texture. All our Radishes are open-pollinated and each variety is unique.
