Radishes are incredibly easy to grow, as they tolerate most soil types and are very quick to be ready for harvest (usually within three to four weeks). They’re delicious when eaten raw, offering a fiery burst of flavor to salads.

There’s a wide variety of radish cultivars to choose from, ranging from near-spherical red-and-white roots to long, thin white radishes, also known as mooli. And however, growing radishes is not hard at all. In fact, with proper planting and care, nearly anyone can become a successful radish gardener.
