How to grow:
Since China Rose is winter radishes, they should be planted about two months before the first expected fall frost. Plant China Rose radish seeds in very rich deeply worked up soil about 1/2″ deep and 1″ apart; later, thin the seedlings 4-6″ apart. China Rose Radishes do well with consistently moist soil and the addition of organic matter such as compost. Do not allow the soil to dry out, but also avoid overwatering as this can cause splitting.
