Radish Growing Guide

Soil

Almost any soil with good drainage.

Position

Full sun to partial afternoon shade.

Frost tolerant

No.

Feeding

Not required.

Companions

Nasturtium, Lettuce and Peas.

Spacing

Single Plants: 3″ (10cm) each way (minimum)
Rows: 3″ (10cm) with 7″ (20cm) row gap (minimum)

Sow and Plant

Sow seeds directly in the bed or row, one-half inch deep and 1 inch apart. Thin to proper spacing when the seedlings are 1 week old.

Notes

Use radishes to mark divisions between sowings of salad greens or other spring vegetables.

Harvesting

Harvest round radishes when the roots are the size of a quarter. Young radishes have the best flavor, so pull them promptly.

Troubleshooting

Flea beetles often make small holes in leaves, but do not merit control.
