Bright, crisp, sweet, and colorful, this mix announces the beginning of fresh culinary delights. Looking to try something new? Try roasting these pretty pearls and tossing in a simple vinaigrette. Your mouth and heart won't regret it!

How to grow: Direct sow as soon as soil can be worked, through mid-spring. Thin small radish seedlings to 2-4" apart. Keep watered, especially as the season warms up. Harvest radishes as soon as they are round. Store radishes without the top to keep roots firm. (Tops are enjoyable in a sauté or braising mix.) Plant in succession to have a steady crop. Sow in late summer for a spectacular fall crop.
