Default Radish and onion review

Hi All,

Review:

Imai Early Yellow Onion:
http://www.kitazawaseed.com/seed_135-96.html

Claim to fame: large onions, over winter.

Three plantings: 1) late fall, 2) early spring, 3) late spring

Zero germination.




Bora King, Hybrid Korean Radish (purple):
http://www.kitazawaseed.com/seed_489-114.html

Big Time, Hybrid Korean Radish (white) (had larger blue seeds ):
http://www.kitazawaseed.com/seed_419-114.html

Claim to fame: LARGE!

Two plantings: 1) early spring, 2) late spring

About one in seven germinated. Only about one is three survived.

Taste: hot and nasty. A tiny bit made my stomach start to hurl.




Vegetable Spaghetti squash:
http://www.kitazawaseed.com/seed_085-187.html

Claim to fame: fun!

Planted early spring
100% germination

Three plants: five medium squash on one; one large on
another; one large on the third.

Comment: takes way to long to ripen and not worth the
effort to grow; small yield

pretty much all summer squash/cucumbers are likely to
be in similar straits in an arid climate. if you have
plenty of water they'll be good producers, but of course
it also helps to have native bees around for pollination.

Sorry to hear about your back luck with the germination
and the poor showing on the squash.

Kitazawa seeds has a couple of lettuce and a few other
varieties that I like and can't find elsewhere, but I've
pretty much given up ordering from them.

Their prices and shipping costs make their seeds more
expensive than most other vendors. I wish they'd offer
smaller seed packages at a lower cost. Lettuce and onion
seeds usually aren't reliable after the first year, and
sending 500+ lettuce seeds in each package means most
are tossed out since I'm only growing for myself and
a neighbor.

It's certainly not a frugal option despite the hard-to-
find varieties.

year in her garden
