How do I sow my radish seeds?
- Direct sow the first crop of radish seeds in rich soil, about four weeks before the last expected spring frost.
- Plant them in deeply worked up soil about 1/2″ deep and 1″ apart; later, thin the seedlings 2-3″ apart or more for larger radishes.
- For a continuous harvest, plant a new crop every two weeks.
- Since most radishes do not tolerate heat well, it is best to avoid planting them in the heat of midsummer.
- For a fall crop and winter storage, plant about two months before the first expected fall frost.
How And When To Harvest Radishes
- Radishes will be ready to harvest quite rapidly, as soon as three weeks after planting for some varieties.
- For most varieties, harvest when roots are approximately 1 inch in diameter at the soil surface. Pull one out and test it before harvesting the rest!
- Do not leave radishes in the ground long after their mature stage; their condition will deteriorate quickly.
- Cut the tops and the thin root tail off, wash the radishes, and dry them thoroughly. Store in plastic bags in the refrigerator.
- Radish greens can be stored separately for up to three days.
