Planted sukurajima mammoth radishes the first week of August, as well as 14 others, and since the warm weather persisted here in Zone 5 Wisconsin, the radishes kept right on growing right up to this first hard hard freeze. I have been stuffing myself with fresh radishes since!

No. Do you think they will be good in the spring? Or maybe go to seed the next year? I have thought about covering with a foot of hay to extend it out, but we eat on them so heavily throughout the fall that there is normally none left!
thank you for sharing the video rick i love some of those radishes, the large ones and the black spanish ones are a particularly interesting, and an extra thanks for sahring the link for the seed company, ive been collecting seed company links for quite some time now:)
Talking about radishes always makes me think about how many people don't know this tidbit: Eat the Greens! Cook them up any way you would turnip or mustard greens. Especially good in curry/stir-fry, etc. And, grown not for roots but just for greens, they are FAST!!
