“Lunch” Radish was bred for soil health, forage and vegetable production. It is the first 3D radish on the market. The root of “Lunch” is very straight, and more uniform in shape than the typical tillage-type radishes. We are offering “Lunch” as our very best for wildlife, livestock, human consumption and deep tillage and nutrient management.
“Lunch” is a new release from Norwest Seed Ltd. in New Zealand. It is a PVP variety and will be sold as certified seed.Order Online or Call (251) 753-9063
“Lunch” has significantly more forage with highly palatable, fairly smooth leaves that are significantly darker green, due to more chlorophyll production in the leaves. This radish also has the combination of a deep penetration taproot for loosening your subsoils, and mining more nutrients—mainly Calcium, Sulfur and Nitrogen—and bringing them to the surface for the next crop. It has a high nutrient load, more than 45 percent protein, and produces higher quality forage.
“Lunch” radish prefers clay or sandy soils. Ideal pH is between 6.0 and 6.8, with an ideal soil temperature of 45 °F. The seed is best planted after July 1 but at least 30 days before a Fall killing frost, at a depth less than 1.5”. It will require 60 lbs. of Nitrogen for good growth. These radishes will usually take 75 days for full growth, establishing well in warmer weather.
