Our Garden Planner can produce a personalized calendar of when to sow, plant and harvest for your area.

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.
