How to grow French Breakfast Radish from seeds:Sowing: Plant the radish deep directly into fertile soil 4 weeks before the last expected spring frost, 1/2 "deep and 1" apart. Cut the seedlings 2-3" or more apart for more giant radishes. To ensure a consistent crop, plant seeds every two weeks. Radish does not tolerate heat well but is cold-resistant. Plant about two months before the first expected fall frost for fall and winter planting.
Growing of French Breakfast Radish: Radish is hygrophilous and loves organic fertilizers. Do not lеt the soil dry out, but also avoid over-watering as this can cause splitting.
How and When to Harvest French Breakfast Radish: French Breakfast radishes taste best when harvested at a length of 3". The flavor is mildly spicy, and the texture crisp.
French Breakfast's Seed Saving: Radishes are cross-pollinated with all other radish varieties and should be isolated half a mile from different types. When the radishes are fully ripe and have a flowering stem, wait for the pods to form and turn brown. Dry the pods for a few days, thresh the seeds. Store radish seeds in a cool, dry place for five years.
