Radish is a cool-season, fast-maturing, easy-to-grow
vegetable. Garden radishes can be grown wherever there is sun
and moist, fertile soil, even on the smallest city lot. Early
varieties usually grow best in the cool days of early spring,
but some later-maturing varieties can be planted for summer
use. The variety French Breakfast holds up and grows better
than most early types in summer heat if water is supplied
regularly. Additional sowings of spring types can begin in late
summer, to mature in the cooler, more moist days of fall.
Winter radishes are sown in midsummer to late summer, much as
fall turnips. They are slower to develop than spring radishes;
and they grow considerably larger, remain crisp longer, are
usually more pungent and hold in the ground or store longer
than spring varieties.
