Radish Seeds -White Icicle Heirloom (Open Pollinated) -Biennial !
Though the exact origin of White Icicle heirloom radishes is unknown, they have been growing in the United States since the late 19th century. A 1903 seed catalog marketed them as somewhat of a novelty, and the 1924 Portland Seed Co.
