Iowa Seed Company, Des Moines Iowa
New All Seasons Radish
Free To Our Customers
But Money Cannot Buy It!
Other Seedsmen Can't Supply It!
Something entirely new--just obtained from China. The best novelty for 1890. It
is of handsome shape, stump rooted, and ivory white in color. Equally good for
spring, summer, fall or winter use. Exceedingly tender, crisp and delicious. Very
desirable for either the market or home garden. We will give a packet of this elegant
new Radish to each of our customers who asks for it when sending in their order.
Order early, and don't fail to include this sterling novelty.
Instead of selling it to our customers at 15 cts. to 25 cts. per packet, as is usually
done, we have decided to make our customers a present this year, which we are sure
they will appreciate. It will be sent to customers of this year only, and only one packet
to each, regardless of the size of their order. We think we have enough seed to go the
rounds, so that all can try it, but be sure to order early. Is it not worth at least a
small order to obtain such a valuable novelty, free?
