Long Black Spanish Winter
One of the latest as well as the hardiest of the radishes and is considered an excellent sort for winter use. Roots oblong black of very large size and firm texture. It is sown rather earlier than the fall turnips and must be stored in sand in the cellar for winter use. It will keep good till spring.
White China Winter
Similar in shape to the preceding though more regular in form. Average specimens measure about 5 inches in length by two inches in diameter. Flesh rather piquant solid and brittle and skin white and clean tops large. A most excellent sort for late fall and winter use.
Scarlet China Winter
Form rather conical and very smooth of a lively rose color flesh firm like the Black Spanish but more pungent. Cultivation the same as for that variety.
D.M. Ferry & Cos Perpetual Market
This variety continues to hold the good opinions formed of it three years ago and as a summer and winter variety it probably has no superior. About seven or eight inches long three inches in diameter at the crown tapering pretty regularly to the point skin white tinged with brown making it look greyish flesh white very solid fine-grained and brittle at all stages of its growth. Sown at intervals it will keep the table supplied the greater part of the year at no period of its growth or season of the year does it become hollow or spongy.
Grey Summer Turnip
Round turnip-shaped though often irregular in form. The skin is mottled with greenish-brown wrinkled and often marked with traverse white lines. Flesh mild of greenish-white color and tolerably solid. Half-early and a good variety for summer use.
Early Yellow Summer Turnip
An oblong turnip-shaped and russet-colored sort growing much larger than White or Red Turnip varieties and having a larger top. The best kind for the South as it stands the extreme heat and drought better than any other kind.
Early White Turnip-Rooted
Like the preceding in shape but in color pure white flesh pure white and semi-transparent. It is a few days later than the preceding and will bear the heat longer without becoming spongy.
Early Scarlet Turnip-Rooted
A small round red turnip-shaped radish with a small top and of very quick growth. A very early variety deserving general cultivation on account of its rich color crisp and tender qualities should be used while young. The white and red do well mixed.
Early Round Deep Scarlet
A valuable improvement on the ordinary Scarlet Turnip Radish and will be found to be very useful for market garden purposes. The color of the skin is very dark red so much deeper than the common scarlet as to attract attention. The flesh is white crispy and it has a very small top. Last season in New York market it brought a third more than the Scarlet Turnip. It is equally well adapted for growing in frames green-house or open ground.
Woods Early Frame
A sub-variety of the preceding not quite so long and a little thicker of brilliant scarlet color mild brittle of fine flavor and the most suitable for forcing and early market garden.
This is an extra early strain of the Long Scarlet Short Top largely used for growing under glass. Pkt. 5c oz. 10c lb. 25c lb. 75c postpaid.
One of the earliest radishes grown its small top making it very fine for forcing shorter and thicker than the Long Scarlet and earlier. Tender crisp and fine flavored.
