Radish is a crop that grows faster than most. They can grown in as little as 25 days and are one of the earliest crops to be planted. There are different varieties depending on the season they are grown. Cooler temperatures produce milder flavors in radishes while periods of heat will develop a spicy strong flavor. Radish also has benefits while growing: its spicy taste repels pests from tomatoes, cucumbers, and carrots.
