Cultivation Advice 

  • Plant French Breakfast 2 Radish seeds in early spring or late summer for cooler temperatures. They thrive in mild weather.
  • Choose loose, well-draining soil enriched with organic matter. Ensure it’s free of rocks or clumps to allow the radishes to grow smoothly.
  • Directly sow the seeds into the prepared soil. Plant them about half an inch deep and one inch apart in rows spaced approximately 12 inches apart.
  • French Breakfast 2 Radishes prefer full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Provide at least 6 hours of sunlight per day for optimal growth.
  • Maintain consistent soil moisture, ensuring it doesn’t become waterlogged. Water evenly to prevent the radishes from becoming overly spicy or woody.
  • Once seedlings appear, thin them to ensure proper spacing. Leave about 2-3 inches between plants to allow enough room for bulb development.
  • Prior to planting, incorporate organic compost or well-rotted manure into the soil. Radishes generally don’t need heavy feeding but benefit from nutrient-rich soil.
  • Regularly remove weeds to prevent competition for nutrients and space. Be cautious around radish roots to avoid disrupting their growth.
  • Lightly mulch to retain moisture and control weeds. French Breakfast 2 Radishes are relatively low-maintenance, but monitor for pests like root maggots or flea beetles.
  • These radishes mature quickly, typically in 3-4 weeks. Harvest when they reach around 1 inch in diameter and are firm. Gently pull them from the soil.
  • Remove the greens and store radishes in a cool, humid place like the refrigerator. Freshly harvested radishes are best consumed soon after for optimal taste and texture.
