Varieties specific for Pacific Northwest

by FigTree

Howdy!  I want to grow radishes, carrots and peppers in the garden bed- do you guys know of a specific variety of any of these that are good for the PNW?

Seattle Tilth's "The Maritime Northwest Garden Guide" has lots of recommendations for this area. I was hoping they'd have the plant sale list up already but not yet. I'm sure they'll have starts though.

In one location, I read that they need to be cool and planted in a light, sandy loam soil. Temps are right to plant the small round ones and the icicle ones mid-spring (mid march - mid april). I read on a PNW garden blog recommendations for Easter Egg II and Cherry Belle. Good luck!

I should note, the info above is about radishes, not carrots!
