Champion Radish is a smooth, round radish with a bright red coloration. Champion Radish received its name based the record yields that it produces. At 25 days to maturity, it is extremely fast-growing and works great for short growing windows. Champion has a crisp, yet sweet flavor. Texture is best when harvested no larger than a golf ball. They produce strong tops, which allows for easy harvesting and removal from the soil. Champion also has excellent holding ability in the field during cool weather, which is great for situations where flexible harvest windows are required. 

Radishes grow best in cooler weather and should be planted in early spring or fall when temperatures have cooled. They prefer well-drained soil and will tend to split if soil conditions remain saturated for long periods of time. Radishes should be harvested at the ideal size for each variety. If allowed to get too large, they will become pithy and not as palatable. Once harvested, tops should be removed for optimal storage. Radishes with tops removed will store in the fridge for up to two weeks. 

Growing

Radishes are a hardy, very easy-to-grow root vegetable that can be planted multiple times in a growing season. Plus, radishes can be harvested as soon as three weeks after planting! Radish seeds can be planted in both the spring and the fall, but growing should be suspended in the height of summer, when temperatures are typically too hot. (Hot temperatures may cause radishes to bolt, making them essentially useless)
