Pretty, Easy to Grow & Tasty11 November 2018I agree with the other reviews, very easy to grow and the plants grew very speedily without any issues. The radish themselves are so pretty with their vibrant pink centre, white rim and green tinged skin which worked really well in a radish, cucumber and yoghurt salad. The radish had a very, very slight spicy heat after taste which was a great little surprise. Would highly recommend even if you don’t normally buy or use radish.
Stunning to look at and a great taste9 November 2018Jolly good germination rate and very easy to grow; these look amazing on the plate when sliced. They can get quite big, some of mine were the size of golfballs but had to be peeled by then as the skins got a little tough. I also tried roasting them - took out some of the "heat" but did become a little bitter so I'll be sticking to raw in future.
Beautiful flavour and colourBy: customer review from 29/09/2015 on 19 March 2016Beautiful flavour, adds awesome colour to a salad. Kids loved them. The leaves can also be harvested and used in salads and as a veggie.
