Cultivation advice Radish Mooli Minowase

Radishes grow best in cool, moist weather (50 – 65F/10 – 18C). Late plantings may bolt before edible root forms. Avoid sowing in the UK between Jun and Aug as plants will bolt.

  • Plant outside in full sun from spring onwards as early as soil can be loosened and worked. Plant 1 seed every inch lightly covering with soil. These plants get large so do not sow thickly.
  • When plants have 3 leaves, thin to 2 inches apart keeping weed free. Thinnings can be used for both leaves and roots.
  • Best sown at 3 week intervals for a continuous harvest.
