Sometimes radishes will split. I think it may be due to getting a bit too dry then getting watered. Enjoy your crop!

I may be wrong, but it looks like it tore open when harvested. It had a definite crease but not split. See the box shape.

Thanks Everyone, I'm using this one to check the average radish size, and by the looks of it, I guess I'm going to add more water and leave them a bit longer

Interesting thought, Eric. But is it not due to the conditions Jal -ut suggested - sudden moisture change with added tuggage from compacted soil?
Guess I shouldn't speak, I can grow daikon, but not the common radish , in my new beds
:roll: :wink:

EDIT: oroz, congrats on your 1st radish,ain't home grown yummy

Nice radish. Like Bobber said, leave it a little longer and it will get much bigger. I leave some of mine for a long time they get bigger. Radish are really easy to grow IMO.

I am orderin tomorrow fromHPS shrumway a 1/4 pound of french Breakfast radish for $3.95 plus some other things. The french breakfast radish is red with a white tip on the botton and is long like a small stubby carrot nad taste great when young! Agway sells seeds in bulk also. I want to try the radish in early april for a three week cover crop then dig it under!

Nice I think I have the same type that you speak of, as soon as I collect my radishes once they get bigger I'm going for second batch, and IMO radishes are the easiest fastest growing veggie besides one of my faves, just because they a bit spicy

Just going by what I see. To me, it looks like a obvious hinge. Also most root crops that split callus over. Look at the picture, clean fresh tear.

Congrats on the radish. The beginning of something bigger. 8)

Oroz, I know the feeling-the thrill of the first anything ! I never could get radishes to grow until I planted them deeper than I had been.
Now I'm a radish pro ! :lol:
Isn't gardening wonderful !
