The greens of radishes are also edible. Eat raw when the leaves are small and tender. More mature greens before turning woody or the stem becoming hard and dark or before leaves start turning yellow can be steamed or boiled....A little lemon, salt, olive oil and you have some great tasting and healthy greens.Great over a bed of rice. Also good for juicing.

What is the best region of the US to grow radishes? What region is Arkansas in? I haven't been able to find that on the Web nor a picture of the US divided into its' regions as I've seen on seeds pack backs.

Recent radish purchases from a variety of shops have all been like rocks. Almost break my dentures. Is it the time of year or just a weather phenomenon?

I have raddish from seed, lots of them. And I have some from seedling. I used Seasol two weekly. The seedlings are ready to eat. I will leave the seeds for another two weeks or so.

What type of fertilizer do you use for radishes. How do you get good root development

How much fertiliser is needed for radishes? No root development and lots of leaves makes me think too much fertiliser.
