Quite different to your average, traditional Radish, this variety produces long, slender, tapered, snow-white roots five or six inches in length. Crisp, tender, mild-flavoured, white flesh. Tolerant of summer heat, the roots never become woody or pithy.

We sow these on the top of the potato ridges - works well.
