Recommended Planting requirements: Radishes do not need a lot of nitrogen but organic matter is important as they like to grow in light fluffy soils. Amend your soil with compost by mixing compost into your planting area. This will help aerate the soil and make the soil structure more favorable to quick root development.
Growing Recommendations: In mild areas like San Diego radishes can be grown year-round. For optimum flavor succession plant so that you may have a study supply of radishes. You can direct sow your seeds in any area of well-worked soil. On our farm, we start our radish seeds in 50 plug seed flats and transplant them out for perfect spacing. It takes a bit more effort but works well for us.
Harvesting and Storage: Radishes are best when harvested at the optimal size and when they are left in the garden for too long they get fibrous and bitter. For this variety, the best harvest size is anywhere from 1-3″.
