RADISH WHITE ICICLE KEEPS IT’S GREAT FLAVOUR NO MATTER HOW BIG IT GETS! $1.30 $1.00

RADISH ‘WHITE ICICLE’ IS A DECORATIVE PURE WHITE RADISH THAT KEEPS ITS FLAVOUR NO MATTER HOW LONG GROWS!
VERY CRISP – GOOD FOR GRATING INTO COLESLAW, MILD FLAVOUR! PURE WHITE INSIDE AND OUT!

The white icicle radish has a lot of charm. Slender and long, mild-flavoured yet with a hint of pepper, this variety deserves a spot in the vegetable garden!

Famously, white icicle radishes really are snow white inside and out. Their shape is more like a carrot than a typical radish: slim and tapered, pointed at the root tip, and about the size at maturity of a person’s finger (4-6 inches).

Also like a carrot, the long white radish has crisp flesh, so crisp that you can snap it in half.
That characteristic makes the icicle radish good for grating into slaw and salads.
Although often mild in flavour icicle radishes can have a peppery twang which some people enjoy with a generous accompaniment of salt, to bring out the juices.

The nutritious greens of the icicle radish, especially the short top variety, are generally smaller than those of red table radishes, and when washed thoroughly these leaves can be added to any country-style salad.

They can also be steamed or braised or added to soups and stews. Don’t waste a bit of this fine radish type!

Unlike other radishes, the icicle radishes don’t grow tough, pithy, and bitter as fast as other kinds. That’s a good thing for planting seeds later in spring without having to worry about over-supply.

It’s also fine to plant white icicle radish seeds a second time, in later summer, for an Autumn crop.

White Icicle, also known as Lady Fingers. Growing to six inches at maturity, the standard white icicle radish dates back as an heirloom to the mid-1800’s.

That means it is reliable in the garden, given proper growing conditions. Does surprisingly well in summer heat.
