Alpine(F1) Radish Seed


Product ID: 2473

Sweet flavored daikon.

Alpine, with its half-long 5-6" by 2-2 1/2" roots, is the most common type grown in Korea. The smooth, attractive roots are white with green shoulders. A better choice than the long types for rocky soils and better flavor, especially in warm weather. Bolt tolerance makes it suitable for spring and summer sowings. For fresh use, pickling, and storage. Avg. 40,000 seeds/lb. Packet: 100 seeds.

Shipping Information & Notes

Growing Information


CULTURE: Daikon radishes require friable, well drained soils with a pH range of 5.8-6.8. Work soil deeply, in raised beds if possible, for straight roots and ease of harvest. Sow 2" apart, thinning to 4-6" apart, rows 24" apart. Note planting seasons in variety descriptions to reduce bolting.
