Cultivation advice Radish Saxa 2

  • Choose well-drained soil with a pH between 6.0 and 7.0.
  • Prior to planting, amend the soil with organic matter or compost for improved fertility.
  • Directly sow Saxa 2 radish seeds in a sunny location.
  • Plant the seeds approximately half an inch deep and one inch apart in rows spaced 12 inches apart.
  • Maintain consistent soil moisture to support germination and prevent radishes from becoming excessively spicy.
  • Water regularly, especially during dry periods, to ensure even growth.
  • Provide full sunlight, as radishes thrive with 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, suppress weeds, and maintain consistent soil temperature.
  • Use a balanced organic fertilizer or compost before planting.
  • Avoid excessive nitrogen, as it can result in more foliage and less desirable radish root development
  • Implement organic pest control methods and consider companion planting for pest deterrence.
  • Practice crop rotation to minimize the risk of soil-borne diseases.
  • Harvest Saxa 2 radishes when they reach maturity, typically around 20-30 days after planting.
  • Gently pull them from the soil to prevent 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 Saxa 2 radishes successively every 10-14 days.
