  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: humus-rich, moisture retentive soil

    A super-fast variety, forming roots within little more than a month after sowing. Their pure white skins and perfectly spherical shape make them very striking to look at and they also have a fine, nutty flavour: when harvested as 'baby veg', as little as 3cm across, they're sweet enough to be eaten raw in salads.

  • Growing Instructions:Choose a sheltered, sunny spot with good rich soil and sow direct where they are to grow in shallow drills, thinning seedlings to about 8cm apart. Protect earlier sowings with cloches and keep well watered through dry spells to avoid them turning woody. Sowing a small amount every three or four weeks keeps the crop coming continuously right through the season. Put in a late sowing in August to grow not for the roots but for the tops. Sow close together in rows and snip the leaves when they reach about 10cm high for a delicious side vegetable cooked like spinach.

  • Sow: April-June

  • Harvest: May-July

  • Approximate quantity: 150 seeds.
