When to Plant Radish

Radishes are cool-season vegetables that grow best in temperatures ranging from 45°F to 75°F (7°C to 24°C).

The ideal time to plant radishes depends on your local climate and the specific variety of radishes you are growing.

Here are some general guidelines:

Winter Planting

Some radish varieties are well-suited for winter planting in milder climates.

If your winters are mild with no hard freezes, you can plant radishes during the winter months.

Check the specific cold tolerance of the radish variety you choose.

Spring Planting

Spring is an excellent time to plant radishes for many regions with distinct seasons.

Fall Planting

Consider planting radishes in late summer for a fall harvest in regions where summers are hot.

Sow the seeds about 4-6 weeks before the first expected fall frost.

Successive Planting

Consider successive plantings every 7-10 days to enjoy a continuous harvest.

Indoor Planting

If you’re eager to start growing radishes early in the season, you can begin indoors and transplant them outdoors when the weather is suitable.
