The Radish (Sparkler White Tip variety) is a type of root vegetable that grows well in cool weather. They are known for their rapid maturation time, so many crops can be grown in a season.

Description[edit]

The "Sparkler White Tip" is a heirloom vegetable and a popular type of radish among gardeners. While not as common as the "Cherry Belle" variety found in US supermarkets, they are similar and have a mild spicy flavor. "Sparkler White Tips" have slightly smaller roots but bigger greens than "Cherry Belle" radishes.

Radishes are known for being one of the easiest vegetables to grow. However, they are vulnerable to "bolting" (flowering) if exposed to the heat and summer for too long.
