Growing Radishes in Home Gardens
Time of planting: spring/summer types – mid-March in western Washington and mid-April in eastern Washington.
Radish (Raphanus sativus) is a vegetable that is easy to grow and comes in a wide variety of root colors, shapes, and sizes providing for a range of end uses. Depending upon the cultivar, radish can be grown in window boxes or small containers on a patio, interplanted among slower growing vegetable rows in the garden, or even sprouted year-round in jars on the kitchen counter. Because radish usually germinates in just 3 to 7 days, it is a good choice when introducing children to gardening.
