Radish Seeds

Sow thinly in rows as soon as the soil can be worked. Plant 1/2 inch deep and thin to 2-4 inches apart, depending on variety. Like other brassicas, radishes are a cool season crop. Successive sowings can be made for a continuous supply but stop sowing prior to onset of warm (70°F) weather and resume planting in late summer for fall crops. Most round, red radishes planted too early, or too late can bolt. In warmer climates try Daikon types that tolerate temperatures better. Dry, hot weather and high nitrogen soils can cause quality issues with radish roots.
