Cultivation Advice 

  • China Rose Winter Radishes are best planted in late summer or early fall for a winter harvest. They thrive in cooler weather.
  • Opt for well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Loosen the soil to a depth of at least 8-10 inches for proper root development.
  • Directly sow seeds approximately half an inch deep and space them 1-2 inches apart in rows. Leave around 12 inches between rows to allow for growth.
  • These radishes prefer full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Ensure they receive at least 6 hours of sunlight daily, even during the winter months.
  • Keep the soil evenly moist throughout the growing period. Water regularly but avoid waterlogging, especially during colder periods.
  • Once seedlings emerge, thin them to ensure proper spacing. Maintain around 2-3 inches between plants to allow sufficient room for bulb formation.
  • Prior to planting, amend the soil with organic compost or well-rotted manure. Radishes don’t typically need heavy feeding but benefit from nutrient-rich soil.
  • Regularly remove weeds around the plants to minimize competition for nutrients and space. Be gentle around radish roots to avoid disruption.
  • Mulch lightly to retain soil moisture and regulate temperature. Monitor for pests like aphids or flea beetles, and employ organic solutions if needed.
  • China Rose Winter Radishes mature in approximately 60-70 days. Harvest when the roots reach around 2-3 inches in diameter. Gently pull them from the soil.
  • Remove the greens and store radishes in a cool, humid place like the refrigerator. These radishes store well, providing a fresh taste even in winter.
