How to Grow Radish at Home

  • Radish is the easiest, quickest vegetable to grow.
  • They can take 21 days under optimal conditions to reach maturity.
  • Plant fresh seed every two weeks to ensure you always have Radish ready-to-eat.
  • Seeds are planted about one centimetre deep and germinate within the first two or three days of planting them.
  • If the Radish bulbs stick out of the ground, once grown, you can ridge soil up around them.
  • Plant Carrot and Radish seeds mixed together, as the Radish opens the ground and are faster growing.
  • The Radishes protect the Carrots while they're small and the Carrot can develop its root more easily after the Radish has been harvested.

Companion Planting with Radish

    Companions (do well together)

  • Radish flowers keep cucumber beetles at bay.

  • Antagonists (don't do well together)
  • Hyssop does not thrive with Radish.

Tips on Eating Radish

  • Radish can be eaten raw or pickled.
  • They add a nice crunchy texture to stir-fried dishes.
  • Try steam or saute the young radish leaves with equal amounts of spinach
  • Add the flowers and leaves to a salad.
  • Radish greens contain more Vitamin C than the root.
  • Harvest radish as soon as they are full grown. Do not let them go too long or they will be tough and tasteless.
