Triton Purple Stem Radish seeds were specifically created to show red sprouts. There are a number of red sprouting radish varieties, and the Triton Purple Stem Radish variety has the darkest color of the red sprouting varieties. The sprout stems have a beautiful purplish red hue with muted red-green cotyledons. This classic winter radish is better when planted later in the season, and it is great to harvest for winter storage because it keeps well. It can also be harvested for micro-greens at about day 12. As micro-greens, this prop will add a beautiful layer to any salad. When these attractive roots are allowed to grow to maturity the Triton Purple Stem Radish has delicious, firm white flesh and an attractive rose-colored skin. Radishes are a cool season crop that is quick to mature. Larger spacing between plants allows radishes to mature to a larger size. Consistent watering will tend to eliminate woody roots and make for better tasting radishes. This variation should be given 2-3 inches of space between plants at a planting depth of 1/4-1/2 inch. The rows should be spaced at about 12-18 inches. For a continuous crop, reseed every 10-14 days. Triton Purple Stem Radishes will reach maturity after 25 days.

I have grown this both ways- as a microgreen and also as a sprout. The sprouts in a jar take about 5 take about 5 days but always turn out great. Beautiful color with a bit of a bite - just like radish.

I have been growing the Triton Radish now for about two months and I love this radish. Beautiful long purple stems, a bit of a cool curl on the leaf, grows very fast and success ratio on the germination is excellent! I will always have this seed in my flavor profiles!
