How to save seeds of Winter radish?

Yazan(5)October 7, 2012


I have some seeds for black winter radish, Black Spanish Round. I really want to save some seeds from this radish because it does very well, however I am not so sure how to save the seeds. I read a lot about saving seeds for spring radish, but no one talked about winter. So if anyone knows the directions on how to do this please answer.

I've only grown winter radish a couple of times but my recollection is that they flowered and set seed the second year just as the small summer radishes do. I would just wait for the pods to ripen and collect the seed then. They do take a while to ripen fully and dry enough to split open. I don't think there's any special trick.
