Radish, Triton

Grows beautiful light purple stemmed microgreens and sprouts.

  • Days to Sprout: Sprout- 4-5, Microgreen- 10-12
  • Soak Time: 4-8 hours
  • Yield: 1 tbsp of dry seed yields approx. 3-4 cups of sprouts.
  • Storage: Our seeds should sprout well for a year after you purchase them, if stored in a cool dry place. If you’d like to extend the germination life of your seeds, store them in the fridge. If you store your seeds in the freezer, they’ll last even longer!

Sprouting Directions 

Soak: Put 1-2 Tbsp. seed in a wide mouth jar with a sprouting lid. Add water, swirl, and drain. Refill jar with water and soak 4-8 hours. Drain well and invert jar at an angle on a sprouting or draining rack, or in a bowl or drain rack.

Rinse: Twice a day, refill jar with cold water, swirl, and drain well.

Enjoy! Ready to eat in 5 days. Refrigerate to store. (Sprouts store best when they are fairly dry.)

Helpful tips:

  • Some sprouts tend to clump together as they grow. To separate, fill the jar with water, remove the screen and stir gently with a fork during the regular rinse. Remove hulls if desired. Drain well.
  • The drier they are the better sprouts keep. Be sure to let sprouts grow another half day after the final sorting rinse before storing in the fridge. Optional: put folded paper towel on top of the sprouts in the jar. Put lid on and refrigerate turned upside down. This removes excess moisture.
  • If your home is very warm during the summer months, it may help to rinse the sprouts three times a day with cold water. Stir gently if clumping.
  • To remove the hulls and unsprouted seeds from leafy sprouts, use a special sorting rinse. Pull sprouts out of the jar into a large bowl filled with water. Swish gently to separate the tangled roots. Most hulls will separate and rise or sink. Discard the hulls.  Collect the sprouts back to the jar with or without aid of a strainer.   Return sprouts to jar, drain, and continue sprouting for another half a day or so.
  • Some brassicas (cabbage family) like radish and broccoli develop very fuzzy root hairs the longer you leave them undisturbed and these can be mistaken for mould. You will even see these after a few days of storage in the fridge. Stirring and rinsing removes the root hairs for a time.


Grow Microgreens!
Soil Method

• 10” x 20” gardening trays (1-inch-tall preferred), 1 with
holes + 1 without. Smaller microgreen trays also work well.
• Good quality organic starting soil mix
• Parchment paper or unbleached paper towel (optional)
• Dome lids (clear or black) or plastic sheet
• Organic seed
• Mister bottle, cup measures, garden spray nozzle (optional)
• Scissors or sharp knife

1. No need to soak radish for microgreens.
Radish is easier to spread on the soil if it has not been soaked.

2. Prepare Soil
Add water to top of the bag (or each tray) 12 hours ahead of use until almost fully hydrated. Rehydrate the bag as necessary. If you were to put the soil in your hand and squeeze it, you should not be able to get much more than a drop of water out of it for the perfect moisture content. If you want to mist the seed after putting it on the soil, reduce the water hydration of the bagged soil a bit.
TIP: To check for overwatering, tip the tray to one end. Water should not pool enough to drip out of the tray.

3. Fill Trays with Soil
Use a tray with holes. Fill with 3/4-1.5” of soil. The closer to the top of the tray the better aid to air circulation. Use a block or your hand to smooth and flatten the soil without compacting it. The back of a tablespoon or spatula smooths out the valleys. You can wait to put the tray without holes under until after unstacking/uncovering or add it to the bottom now.
TIP: Place a layer or two of paper towel on the bottom of the tray before adding soil for easier cleanup.

4. Sow the Seed
Sprinkle the seed evenly over the soil in the tray (pizza cheese shaker, spoon). The seeding density depends on the stage at which you’re planning to harvest. The seeding density depends on the stage at which you’re planning to harvest. Medium seeds like Radish 70g (1/3 c). Sow slightly less seed for 2-3 week microgreens.

Seeds do not need misting if the soil has enough moisture. Mist if you need more moisture. Use a spray bottle or a garden spray nozzle set to light mist. The soil should be moist throughout, but not soaking wet.

5. Cover the Seed
Doing away with soil as a seed cover decreases the work and time it takes to grow the greens. If stacking the trays on top of each other, use a cover directly on the seed like parchment paper, a plastic sheet or wet unbleached paper towel layer. When not stacking trays, the seed will need protection from drying out by using a dome/lid. Use a clear dome or an inverted 10 x 20” tray without holes. For smaller trays, use several layers of unbleached paper towels folded onto itself with or without a plastic sheet covering the top.
TIP: Most microgreens will grow taller when you keep the light out at the beginning, but this may make the stem weaker. Most seeds germinate in the light no problem.

6. Stack Trays or Cover with Lids
Stacking helps to quickly force the roots into the soil, provides darkness, promotes even germination/growth. Stack 2-5 filled trays on top of each other with an empty tray on the top of the stack with a weight in it. Check at least once a day to see if the trays need water. Cabbage family seed sprouts quickly so stack for 2-3 days. Others stack 3-5 days.

If choosing not to stack, simply cover the trays with clear or black-out plastic, a lid or dome. Check at least once a day to see if the trays need water. Cover for the same number of days as above.

7. Expose to Indirect Sunlight, Florescent/LED or Grow Lights.
After 2-5 days, the microgreens should be ready for light. If the microgreens begin to get quite tall and leggy, this is an indication that they may need a bit more light.

8. Water the Growing Microgreens
Check the seed once or twice daily and water as needed. The soil should be moist, not wet. Once trays are unstacked, add water from below into the no holes tray as necessary.

9. Harvest!
Radish is best harvested at around 9 days with scissors or a sharp knife. It grows tall and tends to fall over if left longer. Make sure microgreens are not damp before storing. If needed, you may use a small fan or salad spinner to dry the microgreens before storing in a sealed container in the fridge.

Instead of harvesting all at once, you can start to harvest microgreens as soon as the first two leaves are spread out. Take only what you need for your meal and allow the rest to keep growing or put the tray in the fridge loosely covered and a plastic bag or dome to harvest another day. Water as necessary.

10. Enjoy!
Microgreens make everything better, so have fun with them and add them to your favourite dishes!

Helpful tips:

• To moisten your bag of soil, add water ahead until almost fully hydrated.
• The roots grow under the soil so it works well to water from below if the tray has holes in it, or open the side of the tray and pour water beside the soil when using flexible plastic trays. Otherwise misting or watering from the top works well too.

Grow Microgreens!
Soilless Method

Soak. Using a tray with drainage holes, rinse enough seed to cover the bottom of the tray. Soak the seed for 4-8 hours. Use a jar with a sprouting lid for soaking if the tray holes are too large. Drain, rinse and drain holding at an angle to remove excess water. Spread the seed evenly on the bottom of the tray and cover with a lid top and bottom or put in plastic bag.

Rinse. Rinse with cold water twice a day, using either a gentle flow from a tap, dipping in a sink, or spraying. Drain thoroughly.

Grow. The roots will form a mat from which the microgreens will emerge. At that point, put in indirect sunlight, florescent/LED lights or grow lights. The watering is then easy: fill the container 1 cm deep with water and allow to sit for a few seconds in the water and then tilt on an angle to decant the water until only some moisture is remaining in the root area. Continue to rinse twice a day as described above.

Typically, microgreens grown without soil are harvested at 7-12 days. Harvest before the next expected rinse so the shoots are dry. Harvest microgreens using scissors or knife.

Instead of harvesting all at once, you can start to harvest microgreens as soon as the first two leaves are spread out. Take only what you need for your meal and allow the rest to keep growing or put the tray in the fridge loosely covered and a plastic bag or dome to harvest another day.

  1. Hayati9

    Absolutely delicious sprouts, my husband’s favourite due to their colour and taste.

  2. Geneviève Poirier

    excellent on every hot meal served in the house lately. Crounchy, spicy just enough, even my kids love it!

  3. Greenhouse Grower

    Strong Taste. Red stem is great for appearance. Great for micro greens. Harvested after 7 days with over 2 inches in length.

  4. EKBg

    These are beautiful to look at, and good to eat. They are radishy without being too hot. Great in a salad or on a sandwich.

  5. johnnypants

    These add a nice zip to just about anything. You just need a few to give a wrap, salad, sandwich, or any other dish a nice spicy kick. And they look beautiful too. Highly recommend these!

  6. Lisa

    wonderful product.I am not experienced like others, in the matter of growing sprouts, but this one grows quickly, taste wonderful, perfect.

  7. rmd51

    I use Triton Radish in an automatic sprouting machine and they work wonderfully (RongWei DYJ-A01). Daikon Radish doesn’t work as they get watered too often. I use a small grown light on the last day to get them to green up, which also adds more red to the stems. Sometimes I let them grow a few days longer for bigger sprouts/greens. A bit too Hot and Spicy on their own, but greatly diminishes when mixed or used in a sandwich.

  8. Hayati9

    We love these spicy and crunchy sprouts. They have a reddish stem that looks great. It’s the taste that we appreciate and enjoy. They are easy to sprout, and, have I mentioned? they are delicious!

  9. Joanna

    They sprout and grow very quickly. Beautiful color and very strong flavor.

  10. Preston

    These sprouts grow super quickly, and for me the jar method has worked best; getting taller and fuller than the tray method for micro greens. They’re super pretty and taste great, being a bit spicy and mildly bitter, which I like. Great crunch too.

  11. Manishwater

    Our first attempt worked perfectly. Tasted great! We give it a 5.

  12. Ivy

    This is wonderful radish microgreens: grow fast, strong, looks beautiful with pink stem and great spicy. I will order more.

  13. Danielle T

    Love this product. Will order again!

  14. Elaine

    They taste great and grow quickly and well. These are terrific little sprouts and they look good too. We use pretty much all our sprouts in both sandwiches and salads (except the mung beans)

  15. Elaine

    Love these radishes, always a success and they taste great !

  16. Hesper garden

    I selected this variety at first because the china rose was out of stock, but it has become one of my best selling products.
    The spicy taste is a great addition to a lot of différent meals, from smoothies to wraps to simple salads, but the best part of this radish is it,s color. The bright pink stem add a note of color to garnish with.

  17. Grub & Shrub Farm

    The consistency and quality that all of the Radish seeds we’ve purchased from Mumms is always perfect and delicious.

  18. NewbieGardener

    These seeds produce a robust, flourishing crop in 5 days. Very attractive plants too. The taste is hot and radishy, but blends nicely in a salad, as greens in a sandwich, or on top of a hot dish (where they wilt nicely and the hot taste blends into the other flavours). I especially like them with avacado on top of cheese nachos.
    I find they are very easy to grow in soil (even in containers without drainage if watered carefully) or on a tray sprouter. Highly recommended for novice gardeners.

  19. sprout girl

    Love the spicy taste of these radish seed, they are purple in color so very attractive and extremely versatile. We use them for so many things. I also add these seeds to spicy up other types of sprouting seed because of their spicy hot flavor. I will definitely be ordering them with my next order.

  20. Wayne

    Great product, price, and delivery

  21. Matt Leger

    High Quality Seeds. Fair prices. Great customer service. What’s not to love? Our broccoli/brassica blend came in like a thick carpet in less than a week. Radish sprouts turned out really good too and have a nice bite to them. These seeds work excellent with soilless mediums like hemp mats. I highly recommend this company and their seeds. I’m very impressed with my experience and will most definitely shop again. Thank you!!

  22. Lazy Foodie

    Love these—they are spicy and make a fine radish sandwich on buttered bread, add crunch to salads, spice to noodle bowls (if you find them too spicy, add to a stir fry —like for radishes, heat tempers the bite)

  23. years of experience

    Best radish spout is the TRITON. I spouted Daikon for years, like it but now that I know TRITON, I recommend it. Sprouted KAIWARE and TRITON at the same time: Triton is ready one to two days earlier, has very dark green leaves with lovely, bright red stems. Buy Triton radish. Grown is a tray with grooves it is gorgeous and tasty. NB: Arugula in tray is also a favorite.

  24. RadishLover92

    Amazing taste, nice kick, fast

  25. Mathieu Boutin-Bastien

    Best radish seeds

    Best radish seeds you can buy for a microgreens business. The taste is hot and strong, the plants are sturdy and won’t be bothered by over/underwatering.

    They respond well to light, so if you invest in professional grow light, this type of radish will shine the most.
