The Sparkler radish has a classic radish appearance. Roots are globe shaped, uniform and have a silky smooth shoulder and a refined taproot. The skin’s coloring is two-toned with the top of the roots near the plant’s leaves a deep scarlet red and the bottom half, creamy white. The Sparkler radish’s flesh is translucent white, crisp yet tender. Its flavor is mild and earthy with a subtle sweetness.
Growing Sparkler Radish
Radish seeds can be planted in both the spring and autumn, but growing should be suspended in the height of summer, when temperatures are typically too hot.
For a spring planting, sow seeds 4–6 weeks before the average date of last frost.
It’s best to plant radish seeds directly in the garden so as not to disturb their roots. Directly sow seeds outdoors ½ to 1 inch deep and 1 inch apart in rows 12 inches apart.
Plant another round of seeds every 10 days or so for a continuous harvest of radishes in the late spring and early summer.
Consistent, even moisture is key. Keep soil evenly moist but not waterlogged.
