Introduced in 1899 by the Holmes Seed Company of Canton, Ohio. Round, bright red roots with white flesh, 1.25" diameter. Highly uniform in shape when grown in good soil. Roots are very crisp with excellent texture and juicy, mild flavor. Early maturity, 25-30 days.
You can sow these seeds directly into the soil 1-2 weeks after your last frost date. If you sow a section or row every two or three weeks, you can get a continuous crop.
Keep the soil around these plants moist until the seed has germinated and weed free throughout the growing season. Mulching the soil around the plants will help keep the roots cool.
