4. Harvest your radishes.
Your radishes will probably be ready to harvest in three to four weeks. It's best to eat them soon — they'll turn woody if you leave them too long. Keep in mind that radishes sown in the summer months will need more watering and care.
5. Repeat sowing.
It's a good idea to sow radishes at intervals of about 10 days, so you get a continuous crop to harvest. In fact, it's best to sow only a few radishes at a time, since they don't keep and taste best as soon as they mature. If you find your radishes taste a bit too peppery, try peeling them before eating them — most of the strong taste is in the skin.
