Harvest pods: Wait for radish to flower and produce pods. Leave on the plant for as long as the weather allows, or until pods begin to turn brown. Remove pods and allow to dry inside a little longer, if necessary. Soon after drying, pods will usually break open, so be sure to harvest before seeds fall to the ground.
Harvest seeds: Once pods are dry, break them open with your fingers and collect seeds.
Label and Store: Store seeds in a dry container and label with the date. Properly stored radish seeds can last 4-5 years.
Radishes do best in cool and dry climates. Radishes can be grown from seed or from replanting roots.
Radish are cross-pollinated by insects, so isolation distances must be taken into account to ensure seed integrity. Radish should be planted at least 1000m from other varieties and species that it could cross-pollinate with and related weeds (including wild radish, wild turnip and wild mustard) must be removed to prevent cross-pollination.
