Radishes are frost hardy. In mild climates radishes can be seeded all year long. In hotter climates, stick to planting in cooler months.
Thin when plants are 1 inch high. Water evenly as too little watering results in tough radishes. After thinning, fertilize with 5-10-10 or equivalent fertilizer.
Pick radishes as soon as they reach ample size otherwise they become tough and pithy.
Radish sprouts are much like cress with a tangy, peppery flavor.
