Pink Lady Slipper Radish History

(Raphanus sativus) One of the mildest radishes. Light pink, oblong shaped roots, mild white flesh. Excellent for home and market, well suited for bunching. 25-30 days from transplant. Pink Lady Slipper stores well and stays crisp for weeks after harvest, even late in the season. An excellent choice for both home and market growers.

Growing Pink lady Slipper Seeds

throw the seeds onto the ground and cover with barely half an inch of soil, then water and watch them grow. Radishes are always grown from seed directly into the soil where they will grow to maturity and do not need to be started indoors and then transplanted.
Taking only four or five days to germinate and show their first green growth, radishes seeds are often mixed with the seeds of that germinate much more slowly – carrots and beets, for instance – in order to mark the rows. Since the radish seeds will germinate in just a few days it’s easy to see where the slower germinating seeds will eventually come up. That way you won’t accidentally dig them up when weeding.

Preserving And Storing Pink Lady Slipper Flower

1. CUT TOPS AND ROOTS FROM RADISHES

Be sure to save them — radish leaves, tops, and roots can be dehydrated to use other ways.

2. WASH WELL

I make sure to wash in a large bowl of water to make sure to give them room. Use a vegetable brush to remove all grit and old leaves.

2. CUT RADISHES

Cut radishes into 1-inch pieces. I leave small radishes whole.

3. BLANCH FOR 2-3 MINUTES

Blanching helps slow down the enzymatic process to save the plant tissue and keep the color vibrant.

4. PLACE INTO AN ICE BATH

5. FLASH FREEZE

Place your radish pieces on cookie sheets and store in the freezer for at least six hours.
