Cultivation Advice Radish Crimson Giant

  • Opt for well-drained soil with a pH between 6.0 and 7.0.
  • Prior to planting, incorporate organic matter or compost for improved soil fertility.
  • Directly sow Crimson Giant 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 ensure proper germination and prevent radishes from becoming overly pungent.
  • Water regularly, especially during dry spells, to support steady growth.
  • Provide full sunlight, as radishes thrive with at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day.
  • Thin radish seedlings to ensure appropriate spacing, typically around 2-3 inches apart.
  • Apply organic mulch to retain soil moisture, suppress weeds, and promote overall radish health.
  • Avoid excessive nitrogen, which can lead to more foliage and less desirable radish root development.
  • Regularly monitor for common pests such as flea beetles or aphids.
  • Employ organic pest control methods, and consider companion planting to deter pests.
  • Rotate crops annually to minimize the risk of soil-borne diseases.
  • Harvest Crimson Giant radishes when they reach maturity, usually around 20-30 days after planting.
  • Gently pull them from the soil, and remove any damaged foliage.
  • Utilize freshly harvested radishes promptly for optimal flavor and crispness.
  • Store any surplus radishes in the refrigerator, removing the tops to prevent moisture loss.
  • Extend your harvest by planting Crimson Giant radishes successively every 10-14 days.
