Radish Il Candela De Fuoco Thompson & Morgan£1.99
The ‘Candela Di Fuoco’ features candle shaped roots of firey red, with succulent white centres. Long in shape and crunchy in texture, they have firm and mild flesh.
The roots can reach up to 10 inches in length, and their long shape makes them perfect for planting closely in crowded beds or in rows because their roots are so slim.
Directly sow into rich and well drained soil from February to September in a location that receives full sun to semi shade. For late sowing crops sow in late winter to spring, under cloches and for autumn cropping sow from midsummer.
Sow thinly 1cm deep in rows 20-25cm apart and when your seedlings are large enough to handle thin out to 15cm apart.
Sow every 14 days and you will have a succession of continual harvest throughout the growing season. You can also grow radishes as a catch crop between rows.
