5g (Approx. 460 to 470 seeds)

An open pollinated heirloom of French origin listed by James J. H. Gregory of Marblehead, Massachusetts as early as 1875. Round radishes are fairly new to the vegetable scene and were first available in the nineteen twenties and thirties. Heirloom radishes are of various shapes but long. This unique early variety has a small, slender, oblong, blunt tap root that is crisp, tender, white, and juicy with skin that is rose-scarlet, shading to white at the tip. A top quality radish that is really chrunchy with a distinct, mild, spicy flavor. The tops are short, roots show above ground and the root quality is best when harvested young. An attractive gourmet variety. Early.
