RADISH-- Ger. Rettig.
One ounce will sow about 100 feet of drill.
Radish seed should be sown in light rich soil as early as the ground can be worked, and for a succession, at intervals of two weeks until mid-summer. Radishes must be grown quickly, and have plenty of room or they will invariably be tough and pithy. Sow in drills one foot apart and thin to one to three inches apart as soon as the rough leaves appear. Most of our Radish seed was grown for us in France, "the natural home of Radishes," and we think it cannot be surpassed.

NEW SUPRISE--Of very early, quick growth, the Surprise is remarkable for remaining in fine condition, without becoming pithy, longer than any other early Radish. By successive sowing the Surprise will keep the table constantly supplied with the very choicest Radishes. The skin is thin and colored a rich light brown. So thin is the skin that the pure white of the flesh shows through. In quality it is par excellence; firm, juicy and of fine flavor; per lb. $1.50; 1/4 lb. 50c; oz. 15c... 5.
