One of my favorite radish varieties is German Giant, also known as Parat. They grow to very large size without getting too hot or woody. They aren't winter radishes but I planted some in our fall garden, nine to a square.

I picked two last night from our late garden that were the size of large beets and they were still buttery-tasting with a wonderful texture and just a hint of heat. Last night's supper for me was a radish and butter sandwich. Mmm, good.

I used four slices of radish on my half sandwich, Hubby ate some in his salad, and we still have a third of a radish left.

I never have good luck with radishes. It seems they always do get way to hot or not a great texture. I would love to give these a try. Where did you get your seeds?

I've found them several places in the past - Shumway's and Baker Creek Heirlooms are the most recent places I purchased them.

I always plant the little Cherry Belle radishes in early spring because they are the first thing that is ready to harvest, but I plant German Giant/ Parat along with them for my main eating radishes. They always get large, but they've never grown as large as these we planted in the fall.
