Radish – Easter Egg Seeds

The easter egg radish is fun for kids and adults alike to grow. The seeds produce a beautiful variety of colors, including red, white, pink, and purple all in the same pack! You won’t know which color the radish will be though, until you uncover the soil for the first time to take a peek. Delicious both raw and roasted, these roots grow bigger than standard varieties and stay crisp and mild even when large. Don’t discard the tops either as they are scrumptious when sauteed and incredibly nutrient dense!

Approximate amount of seeds per pack: 450
