Indigo is the best most sure hearting radicchio we’ve grown. Suitable for all year round growing it is reliable even during the hottest periods of the year. 10 to 12cm diameter heads are a rich burgundy colour and have a terrific flavour.
Extra early radicchio with smaller-sized heads making them useful for smaller households. Uniform size and maturity across the planting. Earliest heading variety in trials in the United States. Sow seeds from August until March.
A traditional variety from southern France producing 7-10cm long, slender roots red with a white tip. Nice gentle flavoured early producer which must be dug when ready to avoid pithiness. Read more about Radish Long French ‘D’Avignon’
Makes 10-12cm long red roots with a crisp white flesh. The flavour is both hot and sweet. A favourite of northern Chinese cuisine and can be roasted with soya sauce and sesame seed. Slow to bolt they can be sown year round.
This half-long 12-15cm roots is the most commonly grown variety in Korea. It’s a good choice for gardens with thinner soils. Excellent flavour and can be used fresh in salads, in pickles and in miso soup. Sow seed in rows 5cm apart, thin to 10-15cm.
Australia's favourite rocket and a much improved variety on previous selections. It is also slow to bolt. The dark green leaves have good texture and excellent flavour. Plant from early spring until mid-autumn for year round cropping. Read more about Rocket, Wild Rocket ‘Nature’
My favourite roquette, it’s spicy but not too hot. Its leaves are wide and not deeply lobed. It stands hot summer temperatures well. I can pick it nearly the year round if I plant it anew every six weeks or so.
