Radishes are cool-weather crops, best grown in spring and fall. Seeds can be planted four weeks before the last spring frost, and again in late summer or early fall. In the heat of summer, radishes quickly turn bitter and woody. To grow rapidly and achieve a nice shape, they must be thinned so the plants are at least 4" apart. Do not give radishes a lot of fertilizer or your plants will have big tops and very little root.

Direct seed 1 inch apart, in rows 12 inches apart. Thin to about 4-inches apart. Crowded plants usually do not produce high-quality roots. Use thinings in salads
