Chinese Radish 'China Rose' is a traditional winter hardy variety, popular for producing long, edible tapering roots. While many of the traditional chinese radish varieties are white in colour, Chinese Radish 'China Rose' differs by displaying attractive rosy pink skins, although the flesh beneath remains crisp, and pure white. It has the same distinctive, slightly pungent taste as other varieties, making it an excellent choice for adding a little bite to winter salads. Furthermore, the fast-growing leaves are also edible, the most tender of which can also added to salads and stir fries.

Sow Chinese Radish 'China Rose' outdoors into a prepared seedbed from April to July. They can be harvested as required up until Christmas, after which they can be lifted and stored when the roots are approximately about 4" long.

Not only are they good to eat, Chinese radish are also valued in Chinese medicine for controlling indigestion and food stagnation.
