One of the least pungent of winter radishes. Plant produces excellent yields of 5-8"L x 2½" diameter radishes with white, mild, crisp and juicy flesh. Great for growing as sprouts. Excellent for pickling or winter storage. Withstand light frosts and in storage, stay crisp and mild all winter.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
This variety has a history of being passed down within a family or community, similar to the generational sharing of certain items like jewelry or furniture.
