Salad radishes are quick maturing and easy to grow. Slice into the slightly sweet watermelon radish to find the unique color that inspired its name.

Add pungent hot flavor to your meals with Spanish black radishes. They typically have black skins, white centers, and come in a variety of shapes.
Plant Asian radishes midsummer into early fall. These typically have a long white cylindrical root and are an important ingredient in Asian cuisine and grown for sprouts and microgreens.
A bit more information: Asian radishes’ deep roots and adaptability to a wide range of soil make them a useful winter-killed cover crop. The large taproots break through the top 8 or more inches of soil, die in winter and quickly decompose in spring to improve the soil.
