Growth Habit & Planting Instructions: These radishes prefer a balance of cool to warm climates. They should be directly sown into the ground in a location with full sun and well-draining soil. Space the seeds about 1 inch apart in rows that are about 12 inches apart. Seeds should be planted about 1/4 inch deep in the soil. Since they mature quickly, it's essential to keep an eye on their growth to ensure they're harvested when small, typically when they're about 1-1.5 inches in diameter, to enjoy their best taste and texture. Regular watering and avoiding overcrowded planting will result in the best yield.
