Doomsday Radish


Easter Egg Radish Assortment from David's Garden Seeds®

This is our Doomsday Radish page. It gives instructions on how many radish plants are needed to feed one person for a year.

One cup of radishes is about 20 calories. On a 1200 calorie diet it would take about 60 cups of radishes to survive. It would take about ten radishes to make one cup. This would be 600 radishes a day or 219000 radishes a year.

It would probably not be feasible to plant radishes to survive on. But they can be grown almost year round where the ground does not freeze and are usually ready in about 25 to 30 days. 

You cannot can radishes. You can slice them up to dry, but they probably would not taste very good. The best way to eat radishes is fresh. Once pulled from the ground you have about 24 hours to eat before they start to get soft.

Radishes can be left in the ground when they mature and still be good to eat.

Sakurajima Giant Radish

We have gotten seeds for a rather large radish called the Sakurajima Giant Radish (shown to the right).  We are going to plant these for eating and seed production.  We will have video of this as we go along.  We will start these sometime in February of 2019.  We do not have these for sale at this time.
