Radish, late season

I wonder if radishes planted now would come for a late season crop? Have you ever tried starting them mid July?

Radish are 28 days except for the later ones. You can plant early ones all summer till 30 days before the frost!

Re: Radish, late season

If you are talking things like Daikon and other winter radishes then you are right it is about time to plant them, I did so this morning. You can try the regular ones, but they do have a tendency to bolt in summer heat and may or may not form a "bulb", the best bet in the heat of the summer is a place with afternoon shade if you have it or can rig it up.

Re: Radish, late season

I went in to my seed store and asked for some radish seed. They were sold out. Not getting any more in till next spring. I will have to go look around some of the big stores that have nurseries? Teach me to stock up in the spring next year?

Yep, here in MD the regular spring radishes would just bolt due to the summer heat. I bought my radish seeds online as I want to try different varieties.
