55 days — Also known as 'Red Meat' and 'Continental Fancy', 'Watermelon' radish is an interesting variety in that it has white skin with tender, sweet, dark pink interiors. Grows fairly large in size (between a golf ball and a baseball). Does well as a late fall harvest variety. Each packet contains three grams, which is approximately 200 seeds.
Plant seeds directly outdoors as soon as soil can be worked. Plant ½ inch deep, ½ inch apart in rows at least 8 inches apart. Firm soil and keep moist until seedlings appear. Radishes have shallow root systems so do keep them watered.
Harvest as soon as roots reach desired size.
