The china rose one like cold weather too!
I wonder if it is too late to try this year? Our growing season
is really short. Early October comes the first freeze.
yes, the grow quickly... :)
dunno, i never put them in the gardens that
have that type of soil. they'd probably grow
if they got enough water. might not have much
note that some radishes are excellent for
busting into hard packed ground. they are
often included in a mix of seeds people around
here use to seed a pasture. diakon radish.
they can get pretty big too.
I tried daikon radishes once upon a time when I was young and foolish.
About burned my taste buds off my tongue. I found them hotter than horse
radish, when daikon must be kin to.
George, in hot, humid, SE Texas
the radishes may recover, but yeah, you can
also replant. they sprout and grow quickly,
just not sure how well they will do in the
very hot weather. pick, 'em as soon as they
get big enough, would be my guess.
the daikons here are already a foot high.
nice tap root. :) too hot for me to eat now.
i just like the sprouts.
Hot as it is here radishes do not flourish in the hot summer of Houston
area. We're getting some mid-afternoon temps up to 100F, hopefully it
will get hotter in July and I won't be going outside for awhile.
I'm thinking of planting some New Zealand spinach again. It took three
years to get rid of them in Louisiana but the leaves are tasty and they
carry a goodly load of vitamins. Dear wife might try to off me if I do.
Mostly, if taken fresh. Have no idea of the oxalic acid levels. Just
know it's tasty, seldom dies back in my climate, and that it drops a lot
of seeds. The leaves get about as big as an American quarter so it takes
a lot of picking to make a mess.
