I grew 2 radish varieties this winter. This one is the best radish I have ever eaten. It is sweet, not hot at all. The greens are delicious in salads. The leaves are not prickly like some radish leaves. My lifelong organic gardening mentor said they are the best radishes she has ever had! I gave some away and they asked for more on their next visit.
