Suttons - Royal Purple Radish

I've been sent these by Suttons to trial as they are a New variety to Suttons for 2024 sold for £2.49 for 200 seeds. So I'm adding them to my Radish seed collection, as I do love a radish.

The web site page for these Suttons Royal Purple Radish says:-

"Perfectly formed, plump, round radishes up to 5cm in diameter! The large, uniform roots of Radish ‘Royal Purple’ have mildly sweet flesh and a satisfying crunch that will please all radish-lovers! Ready to harvest in just 33 days from sowing, Radish ‘Royal Purple’ is perfect for beginners and budding young gardeners. Height: 20cm (8in). Spread: 10cm (4in).

Sowing Information

Direct sow radish seeds from February to March under glass at a temperature of around 15-20C (59-68F), or from April to August outdoors. Grow radish in a well prepared fertile, moist, free draining seedbed in full sun or semi shade. Sow radish seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (½in) in drills 15cm (6") apart. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 2.5cm (1in) apart. Regular sowings made at 4 week intervals will ensure a steady supply of radishes throughout the season. Radish plants are quick growing and can be used for intercropping between other slower growing vegetables such as parsnips. Where space is limited, growing radish in patio containers will also produce a worthwhile crop."
