Radishes are a favorite seed to sow as soon as the soil can be worked in spring. They grow easily and rapidly in cool weather. Moderately fertile soil is fine, amended lightly with manure and/or compost. Too much fertilizer causes heavy top growth and stunted roots. Seed in small rows or broadcast, covering lightly with soil. Tamp down lightly, and water. Sow every 7 to 14 days for a steady supply. The key to crisp, mild Radishes is regular watering and weeding. Thin carefully when Radishes are about 2" tall. Harvest small for mildest flavor and crispy texture. All our Radishes are open-pollinated and each variety is unique.
Average seed life: 3 years.
