This variety of radish is known for sprout and microgreen production, but can be grown as a great tasting root vegetable as well.
It has delicious and spicy flavour that is excellent in salads, sandwiches and other meals. Attractive red stems with green leaves. The root vegetable resembles a red carrot.
Sprouting instructions, this is not the only way to do sprouts, everyone will acquire their own sprouting techniques, but here are the basics:
Set your sprouter anywhere out of direct sunlight and at room temperature (70° is optimal) between Rinses. This is where your sprouts do their growing. A counter top or top of a refrigerator is - or in the corner of your kitchen, but where the sprouter won't get knocked over by cats, dogs, kids or us.
Sprouts don't mind the indirect sunlight or the 150 watts of incandescent light, because light just does not matter much. Your Sprouts will never have true leaves, and a plant can only perform photosynthesis when it has leaves. Until then light has little if any effect, so don't hide your sprouts. Plus, they like air-circulation.
Rinse and Drain again in 8-12 hours. And, once more... Rinse and Drain again in 8-12 hours. And, perhaps once more... Rinse and Drain in 8-12 hours.
Stop no later than here if you like small sprouts. In this case, for just 2-4 Rinse and Drain cycles. At that point most of the seeds will have sprouted tiny (1/16 - 1/4 inch) roots
Depending on your climate and the time of year you are sprouting and most importantly your personal preference - You may Rinse and Drain again at 8-12 hour intervals for up to 6 days. We Do Not recommend doing so, unless you're doing a science experiment. Grow them for as long as you like. As long as you continue to Rinse and Drain every 8-12 hours. If you grow for a week you'll get some plants growing as well as roots. Experiment! Have Fun! It's All Good - if occasionally inedible, lol.
We suggest that you taste your crop at EVERY Rinse - including the very first - just after the Soak period. The soaked seeds are already alive and super nutritious - and - they are without enzyme inhibitors (a very good thing indeed!) so they'll digest themselves and nourish you. So taste them often and find out for yourself when they are most delicious! That's when they're done.
Harvest Time! Your sprouts are done 8-12 hours after your final Rinse. Be sure to drain them as thoroughly as possible after that final Rinse. The goal during the final 8-12 hours is to minimize the surface moisture of your sprouts - they will store best in your refrigerator if they are dry to the touch.
Refrigerate! Transfer your sprout crop to a plastic bag or the sealed container of your choice and put them in your refrigerator once they have reached your personal optimum growth.
