min qty: 4 g

Raphanus sativus

The cherry belle radish is among the most widely cultivated and popular types of radishes in the world. It was developed in the United States and has been widely used for its taste, color, and ease of growing.

The Cherry Belle radish is generally harvested about 25-30 days after planting and typically grows to a size of about 1-2 inches in diameter.

Choose a location: Radishes prefer well-draining soil in a sunny location. Soil should be loose, with a pH between 6.0 and 6.8.

Prepare the soil: Work the soil to a depth of about 6 inches and remove any weeds or debris. Incorporate compost or well-rotted manure to improve soil fertility.

Sow the seeds: Sow radish seeds about 1/2 inch deep, about 2 inches apart, in rows that are spaced about 12 inches apart. If planting in containers, follow the same spacing guidelines.

Water: Keep the soil consistently moist, but not waterlogged, until the seeds germinate.

Germination: Radish seeds typically germinate within 3-7 days, depending on soil temperature and moisture levels. Keep the soil consistently moist to maintain good germination rates.

Thin the seedlings: Once the seedlings have emerged, thin them to 2-3” between plants.

Fertilize: If necessary, feed the radishes with a balanced fertilizer every 4 weeks.

Harvest: Radishes are usually ready to harvest about 25-30 days after planting.
