Culinary Uses for White Icicle Radish

White Icicle Radish have a sweeter, milder flavour than winter varieties, yet they also deliver that familiar peppery crunch that you expect from the Radish family.   This vegetable is lovely when finely sliced and sprinkled raw over a salad, or pickled.   

Growing Conditions - Radish (White Icicle)

   

Radish thrive in full sun, cooler temperatures and a slightly alkaline, rich and light soil. Young plants need regular water to get started and ensure tender, rather than tough Radishes. Chervil, Marigolds and Mint are good companion plants for Radishes. 

Once established, Radishes can cope with frost and wind.  They will survive mild spells of dry weather, but do best in soil that is keep consistently moist (not soggy). (Mulch well to retain even soil moisture. ) Radish plants are medium - heavy feeders, so keep them happy with regular applications of worm or seaweed tea during the growing season.   Harvest while roots are young and tender.
