This page provides visual and written information on Radish Growth. The model we are using is the Easter Egg, pictured above.
Make beautiful bunches with this mix of red, purple, and white round radishes. Maturing over an extended period of time, they stay crisp and mild even when large.
CULTURE: Sow anytime during the season, beginning in early spring. Use 2-3" wide bands, seeds about 3/4-1" apart 1/2" deep, rows 1' apart, or any row or bedding scheme that will eliminate un-planted ground as much as possible.
INSECT PESTS: Flea beetles eat holes in the young leaves. In good soil and weather the plants normally grow out of this trouble to make a good crop. Use floating row covers at time of planting for insect-free radishes, or control with rotenone or pyrethrin. Control cabbage root maggots with our floating row covers.
RADISH QUALITY: Even when using quality seeds, keep in mind that radish is adversely affected by hot, dry weather, and remains in prime condition only a few days. To be mild, tender, and attractive it should be grown rapidly with plenty of moisture. If growth is checked, the roots may become hot, tough, and pithy.
HARVEST and STORAGE: Harvest on time! Begin harvest in about 3-4 weeks when roots are the size of a large marble. Bunch or top, hydro-cool, and refrigerate. Topped radishes will keep 3-4 weeks in good, crisp condition if kept near freezing in high humidity in semi-permeable containers.
Below is a picture of my radishes. These radishes are about one week old. So far they are growing great. I planted some radish seeds between other plants since I know they will mature long before the other plants will.
Radishes are a fast grower and are ready to eat in 30 days or less.
The picture below shows the radishes making good progress. They will be ready for harvesting soon.
Below is a picture of my harvested radishes. They were crisp and tasty.
Radish are more of a cool weather crop. As soon as one crop is ready, you can plant another one. There are many colors of radishes. Do not let them overgrow or they will not taste. Bigger is not necessarily better.
