Last spring I obtained seeds,but did not get them planted.
Will try next season.
If I remember right-----it is the seed pods that one eats and not the root?

I first saw the seeds at Solana seeds. The picture shows the radishes. The write up says they need lots of heat to 'bolt' and that they are good used in stir fries. We get a lot of wire worm damage with the underground ones so I thought this might be an alternative. Sounds good to me! Marg
