Long radish "Candela di Fuoco".
Powerful, tasty, crunchy!
Mid-early (32-42 days from germination to technical maturity) variety. The root crop is red with white-pink transverse striation, long-cylindrical, 12-13 cm long, 2-2.5 cm in diameter.
The flesh is white, juicy, slightly spicy in taste. The taste is excellent. The variety is cold-resistant, resistant to flowering, well stored.
Agrotechnics: for sowing radishes, a site is chosen that emerges from under the snow early, with light but highly fertile soil (any vegetable crops, except for the cruciferous family, can be the predecessors of radishes). Before sowing, fertilizers are applied to the soil.
Radishes are sown at several times: at the end of April (the bed is covered with a film before germination), then, if necessary, sowing is carried out at intervals of 2-2.5 weeks, for winter storage, late-ripening varieties are sown in early August.
Seeds are sown in rows with a row spacing of 10-12 cm, a distance between seeds of 2-3 cm to a depth of 1-1.5 cm. After germination, it is necessary to regularly loosen the soil and keep it moist.
At the height of summer, with the longest daylight hours, planting radishes is recommended to be shaded.
To obtain an earlier and later harvest, radishes are grown in protected ground (in spring, seeds are sown in early March, in autumn - in early September).
