Long, slim, icicle radishes are a crispy and flavorful vegetable, ready for harvest only about 25 days after planting. Like all radishes, icicle radishes are easy to grow even in a postage-stamp garden with well-drained soil and plenty of bright sunlight. While radishes are a cool-season crop usually planted in early spring, icicle radishes are more heat tolerant and suitable for planting in early summer. Plant a small crop every two weeks to guarantee a continuous harvest.
Spade or till the soil to a depth of at least 6 inches. For each 100 square feet of planting space, dig in approximately 10 pounds of compost or composted manure and 2 pounds of a granular fertilizer with a ratio such as 5-10-5.
Make a shallow row with a stick or the tip of a hoe. Sprinkle the radish seeds in the row approximately 1/2 inch apart, and then cover the seeds with about 1/2 inch of soil. As a general rule, 6 to 10 feet of row produces enough radishes for two people.
Water the area immediately after planting, providing enough moisture to saturate the soil to a depth of at least 6 inches. Use a hose with a spray nozzle with a fine setting to avoid washing the seeds from the soil. Keep the soil evenly moist until the seeds sprout. Thereafter, water whenever the top 1/4 inch of soil feels dry.
Thin the radish seedlings soon after they sprout. Pull the weakest seedlings, allowing about 1 inch between seedlings.
Pull weeds around the radish plants, as weeds steal moisture and nutrients from the developing radish plants.
Harvest icicle radishes about 25 days after planting, or when the radishes are about 4 inches long. Don't allow the radishes to remain
