Radish - French Breakfast
Roots are oblong and solid, tops are short. The skin is lively pink in color on the upper portion, but the lower part is pure white. Can be sown very thinly in the same row with lettuce or parsley, in fact almost anywhere in the garden, as they mature quickly and are out of the way for other things.
Radishes may be planted in the same row as slow growing kinds of vegetables such as carrots or lettuce. To grow the best Radishes, the crop must grow quickly, therefore, the soil must be loose and enriched with fertilizer and plenty of organic matter. Lack of moisture can cause a hot flavor and woody texture.
