Record Radish in Way’s Mills

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Way’s Mills

Lo­calartist and gar­den­ing en­thu­si­ast Ge­orge Foster is known for grow­ing some in­ter­est­ing plants in his green­house and he’s done it again. Over the week­end he har­vested what has got to be one of the largest radishes on record, weigh­ing in at a lit­tle un­der ten pounds! “If I had kept the leaves on be­fore weigh­ing it I’m sure it would have been over ten pounds,” said Mr. Foster. The seed for the hu­mon­gous radish, a Daikon ‘Mooli’, came from Eng­land and was planted in his green­house last fall. “It’s a mild radish that doesn’t bolt in the sum­mer so it’s easy to grow. It’s also good to eat raw and cooked. I like it in stir-fries,” com­mented Mr. Foster who thought some of the Stanstead Jour­nal’s readers might be in­ter­ested in try­ing out this radish in their gar­dens this sum­mer.

Ge­orge Foster, of Way’s Mills, har­vested this al­most ten pound Daikon radish in his green­house over the week­end.
