French Breakfast Radish (Raphanus sativus)
First introduced in late 19th-century France, this heirloom made a name for itself at Parisian markets. Rosy, oblong roots terminating in dainty white tips render these fast-growing radishes as ravishing as they are succulent. Enjoy them with dips and salads, or as a simple fresh snack.

Before growing these, my first radishes, I had only the supermarket kind, strong, too spicy, with droopy leaves. Well, these radishes are a whole different kind, these are creamy, delicate, delicious; I have gotten used to go out in the morning, pull a couple out and eat them on buttered bread for breakfast, they are awesome this way. They grow without much care, just give them a bit of space when planting the seeds and water them regularly, that's it. I'll be back for these over and over again, recommended!
I've never been a radish fan but these have a nice mild flavor. I planted them early in the spring and have been planting all summer and will continue through fall. The leaves are nice in salads.
I am not normally a radish fan, as I don't really like the horse radish bite that most radishes have. These French Brakfast radishes are simply amazing. They are very aesthetically pretty to look at, the shapes are unique cylindrical, but the flavor is simply awesome. They are mild and sweet and I bought several more packages of these seeds and will grow these throughout the summer and early fall. Try these, you won't be disappointed.
