2015 radishes

Several generations down the line now from the original cross of 'Long Black Spanish' and 'Roseheart'. Still a lot of diversity!


  1. Nice! A black rose hearted radish for fresh eating would be cool and dramatic. Radishes are very strongly self incompatible, which might explain the continued variance.

  2. Thanks Jakub! I'll have to keep that self-incompatibility in mind when I'm choosing the parents each generation. I wouldn't want to cut it too close with my sample size.
