Cultivation Advice Italian Radish Candela Di Fuoco

  • Choose well-drained soil with a pH between 6.0 and 7.0.
  • Enhance soil fertility by incorporating organic compost or well-rotted manure.
  • Directly sow Candela Di Fuoco radish seeds in a sunny location.
  • Plant seeds about half an inch deep and one inch apart in rows spaced 12 inches apart.
  • Maintain consistent soil moisture to support germination and prevent the radishes from becoming too spicy.
  • Water regularly, especially during dry periods, to ensure steady growth.
  • Provide full sunlight, as Italian radishes thrive in at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day.
  • Thin radish seedlings to ensure proper spacing, typically around 2-3 inches apart.
  • Apply organic mulch to retain soil moisture and suppress weeds, contributing to healthier radishes.
  • Use a balanced organic fertilizer or compost before planting.
  • Avoid excessive nitrogen, as it can lead to more foliage and less desirable radish root development.
  • Monitor for common pests like flea beetles or aphids.
  • Employ organic pest control methods, and consider companion planting to deter pests.
  • Practice crop rotation to minimize the risk of soil-borne diseases.
  • Harvest Candela Di Fuoco radishes when they reach about 4-6 inches in length, usually around 25-30 days after planting.
  • Pull them gently from the soil to avoid damage.
  • Use freshly harvested radishes promptly for the best flavor and texture.
  • Store any excess radishes in the refrigerator, removing the tops to prevent moisture loss.
  • Extend your harvest by planting Candela Di Fuoco radishes successively every 10-14 days
