The 'Faraon' radish (Raphanus sativus), whose seeds we hereby offer in 100 gram packages, is an early variety bred for cultivation in greenhouses for the first harvest. Its round evenly shaped roots are a great fresh vegetable that is rich in vitamins and minerals. They are covered by the red shiny skin that shelters tender, crunchy, delicious flesh. These medium large radishes look appetizing and do not break. The variety that we offer here belongs to the most productive ones and its roots are resistant to bending and deforming. This variety does not shoot into flowering stalks prematurely. You can grow this variety for spring and autumn harvest. 'Faraon' radish roots can be eaten directly after the harvest. You can store them for a few days in a fridge. Their savoury flesh is rich in vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, C, K and contains the easily accessible iron, potassium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Radish is a low-calorie vegetable. The essential oils it contains show antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties, regulate digestion processes and stimulate appetite.

The 'Faraon' radish seeds can be sown in greenhouses and in the field already in early spring. Sow for the autumn harvest in the second half of summer. The vegetation period of this early vigorous variety lasts only 28 to 32 days.

Where do our seeds come from?

Exclusion of the middlemen from the whole process not only makes it possible for us to avoid sending out-of-date seeds that might have been lying too long on a warehouse shelf, but also ensures the most attractive price for top quality products.

The quality control process

All our seeds must pass a four-stage quality control process.

Stage one begins with a careful selection of the suppliers. Than we proceed with controlling their crops, foreign producers are not excluded from the quality control process. Plants are checked at every stage of their development: when they start to grow, during blooming and when they start bearing fruit (seeds). At this stage the most important thing is to ensure proper spacing of the plants. Thanks to that obtaining the desired morphological characteristics of each particular species or variety, such as colour, height and shape, can be ensured.

Stage two consists of a detailed verification tests in laboratory conditions. With the use of the highest quality equipment by the highly qualified staff, our suppliers perform more than 30 000 quality checks annually. The seeds that do not meet our requirements are subject to technological refining processes, including drying, cleaning, upgrading and testing again.

Stage three starts with sowing seeds in selected control plots. That way we obtain valuable, exact information concerning their germination that must be maintained at an appropriate level. Simultaneously, the varietal identity of each species is checked at this stage.

Stage four takes place in our warehouses and consists of eliminating seeds that have been stored for too long on our shelves and replacing them with new batches. Each package is stamped with a unique batch number and also with the sow-by-date.

All four stages combined allow us to state with confidence that the seeds we deliver comply with the highest standards and have completed all required control stages with flying colours.
