Cultivation & harvest
Radish White Icicles are grown in medium to light soils. The soil for this should be deep, loose and humus, and sandy-loamy. Furthermore, it should be noted that the icicles are regularly supplied with water. Irregular supply causes a furry and pungent taste.
Radish White Icicles must be peeled and can then be used as a raw vegetable or as an ingredient in salads. Moreover, the still quite mild icicles can also be used as decoration for cold cuts or cheese platters.
Radish icicles are best processed as fresh as possible after purchase. In the vegetable compartment of the refrigerator, the icicles can be stored for up to four days.
