Uses: The Cherry Belle Radish is not just a visual delight but also a culinary treat. It offers a balanced blend of sweetness and mild spiciness. This radish variety is versatile: enjoy it raw for a crunchy snack, incorporate it into salads for a peppery zing, or even pickle it for extended shelf life and a tangy twist. Its rich color can also act as a garnish, enhancing the visual appeal of numerous dishes.
Growing Habits & Planting Instructions: The Cherry Belle thrives in cool conditions. For optimal growth, sow seeds directly into the soil, burying them 1/2 inch deep and spacing them 1 inch apart in rows that are 12 inches apart. To ensure a steady and prolonged harvest season, consider planting new seeds every two weeks. The soil should be well-draining, and maintaining consistent moisture is key to producing juicy radishes. Once the top part of the radish becomes visible above the soil, it's an indication that it's ready for harvest. Avoid over-crowding as it can impact the size of the radishes. Given their rapid growth rate, the Cherry Belle Radish is particularly suited for gardeners who seek quick rewards from their planting efforts.
