Early Scarlet Globe

20 days — As its name implies, 'Early Scarlet Globe' goes from seed to table very quickly, maturing in as little as twenty days. It has bright red skin and crisp, white flesh. This variety also does well in frames and greenhouses for forcing.

In regards to the history of 'Early Scarlet Globe', it first appeared for sale in American, with very little fanfare, in the 1885 seed catalog of James Vick of Rochester, New York. He simply stated, "This new variety is one of the finest for forcing and market gardening purposes." A few years later, most of the New England seed companies were offering it.

When Robert Buist introduced it to their customers in their 1888 seed annual, they described it as follows:
"A new and very beautiful German variety, of globe shape, brilliant scarlet color, short-leaved, and very early; a desirable forcing variety. We regard it as one of the very best market varieties. Its very beautiful and distinct appearance will always insure its sale."
Over 100 years later, 'Early Scarlet Globe' is still one of the most popular radish varieties we offer. Each packet contains three grams.
