Easter Egg Blend is a mix of red, white, rose pink, purple, and bi-color (red top, white base) radishes. At harvest time, you can have your own "Easter egg" hunt for the most colorful radish! As a spring radish, they are best grown in the cool periods of spring and fall. Eat fresh in salads or add a bit of crunch and color to sandwiches. A good choice for gardening with kids.
