Radish (Raphanus sativus L.)_is an anciently annual or biennial cultivated vegetable. It most likely originated in the area between the Mediterranean and the Caspian Sea (Crisp 1995). It may come from the wild radish in southwest China (Cheo et al.1987).

Do radishes have seeds? Luckily, most radishes grow quickly and will produce seed in one season. Some radishes, such as the Rat-Tailed radish, are grown for their edible seed pods rather than their roots. The entire seed pod is edible, and-has a lighter radish bite.

How do you harvest daikon radishes? Tops break off easily during harvesting, so radishes should be harvested by hand. Use a digging fork to gently lift and loosen the soil around the radishes, then gently pull on the tops as close to the ground as possible. If you plant several crops in a row, you can harvest Daikon radishes for severalweeks.

What is radish seed used for? Radish is used for stomach and intestinal disorders, liver problems, bile duct problems, gallstones, loss of appetite, bronchitis,fever, colds, and cough. It is also used for high cholesterol.
