START SEEDS OUTDOORS

In early spring as soon as ground can be worked, sow radish seeds in well-worked, fertile soil in full sun. Plant seeds 1/2 inch deep and 1 inch apart, in wide rows 6 inches apart. Keep soil evenly moist and well weeded. If first sowing comes up unevenly, replant right away. Sow again in late summer for a fall crop.

 

GROWING NOTES

Sow this quick cool season crop wherever you intend to plant heat lovers later. Radishes thrive with crisp flesh and mild flavor when given consistent moisture. Sow small amounts a week apart to mature in warm but not hot weather. Thin quick-growing seedlings early to 2 inches apart so roots have room to size up. Protect radishes with floating row covers if marauding birds or flea beetles that chew holes in the leaves are a problem.

 

HARVEST AND USE

Pull young round roots at large marble size. If weather turns hot, harvest, cut off tops and store in fridge. Radishes’ flavor is mildest in cool weather, spicier in hot conditions. Picked young and tender, radishes make crispy snacks and add appealing color and crunch to green salads. Delicious sliced and used for dipping with hummus or other creamy spreads.
