Sowing and Growing Guide

French Breakfast 3 Radish

Indoor Sowing

  • Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost date in your area.
  • Fill seed trays with seed starting mix and sow seeds 1/2 inch deep, 1 inch apart.
  • Keep the soil moist and at a consistent temperature of 60-65°F.
  • Radish seeds typically germinate in 3-7 days.
  • Once seedlings have developed their first true leaves, thin them to 2-3 inches apart.
  • Transplant seedlings outdoors when they are 2-3 inches tall and have at least two sets of true leaves.

Outdoor Sowing

  • Sow seeds directly into well-draining soil as soon as the ground can be worked in the spring.
  • Choose a sunny location with well-draining soil that has been amended with compost or well-rotted manure.
  • Sow seeds 1/2 inch deep and 1 inch apart in rows spaced 12-18 inches apart.
  • Keep the soil moist and weed-free.
  • Thin seedlings when they are 2-3 inches tall, leaving 2-3 inches between plants.

Growing

  • French Breakfast 3 radish prefers well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter.
  • Water consistently to keep soil evenly moist but not waterlogged.
  • Fertilize once a month with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Protect young seedlings from pests, such as flea beetles, by covering with a floating row cover or using a biological control, such as beneficial nematodes.
  • Harvest radishes when they reach mature size, typically 3-4 weeks after sowing. French Breakfast 3 radish is typically harvested at 3-4 inches long and 1 inch in diameter.
  • Radishes can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
