Availability: In stock
Botanical Name: Raphanus sativus
Spicy and so very attractive! Radish sprouts taste like the plant they would grow into if planted in the garden, therefore if you like radishes you'll love Radish Sprouts.
This BULK BAG of Radish Sprouts contains 100g of seeds. They are supplied in a labelled ziplock bag instead of our usual branded retail packs. All Mr Fothergill’s Sprouting seeds are GMO free and microbiologically tested to be free of pathogens such as e-Coli and salmonella.
Some researchers claim that Radish sprouts are as high or even higher in nutrition than Brocooli sprouts. Either way, they are certainly Superfoods. They are high in Folate and Vitamin B6 which supports healthy cardiovascular system, high in glucosinolate content which make them potent with anti-cancer qualities. Radish sprouts are also one of the best foods for people who are trying to lose weight as they are very low in calories. Lastly, vitamin C rich foods – such as radish sprouts – can offer benefits for the skin. Vitamin C helps the body produce collagen, a protein that keeps your skin smooth, elastic, and wrinkle-free.
How To Grow
Growing in a Mr Fothergill’s Kitchen Seed Sprouter:
Spread about 1 tablespoon of seeds in one or more of the four clear plastic trays. Stack the clear trays on top of the bottom tray. Pour enough water into the top tray to cover the outlet. This will commence the siphon action and water will drain down through each of the trays and outlets. When finished draining, empty any excess water from the bottom tray. The water that stays in the clear trays is enough to provide the necessary humidity for successful seed germination. Water in this way at least 2-3 times each day.
Growing in a jar:
Place about 1 tablespoon of seeds in a large jar or similar container. Cover the opening of the container with a fine clean cloth and secure with a rubber band.
Add enough warm water to completely cover seeds and soak overnight at room temperature. Next day, pour off excess water through the mesh cloth. Add fresh water to
thoroughly rinse and drain. Rinse and drain sprouts at least twice a day.
Larger sprout varieties will take up to 5 days before they sprout. Ensure they are kept moist.
