Triton Radish produces purple-stemmed microgreens. The stems are colorful, purplish-red, and beautiful against the dark green cotyledon leaves.
Triton radish seed is quick to germinate (sometimes within 24 hours) and are vigorous growers. They quickly reach 3- to 4-inches in height and are ready to harvest in 6- to 10-days.
The dark green leaves are attractively lobed with reddish-purple stems.
Radishes make the perfect edible garnish that will add a touch of color and spice to any dish. I also use them in egg dishes, salads, cold soups, and burgers. You can use radish microgreens in place of sliced radishes.
As mentioned, the flavor is spicy but not harsh.
Plant breeders explicitly developed the Triton Purple Stem Radish microgreen seed for its distinctive purple sprouts. It is a type of Japanese winter radish in its mature form, also known as a “daikon,” which means “large root” in Japanese.
Radishes are a staple microgreen because of how quickly and easily they grow and their excellent flavor and texture.
