Here is the Long Black Spanish Radish, Raphanus sativus. It is an oblong 8 inch long root with a black skin and white flesh inside. We found it best to pickle this black radish due to it's sharp taste. They are a bit more spicy with a sharper bite then the round black radish. Radishes in general can be useful as companion plants for many other crops, probably because their pungent odor deters such insect pests as aphids. This is a great starter vegetable for new gardeners. Open pollinated, 50 days.
