What are the pros? Lots of edible pods
What are the cons? No root growth, bolts quickly
Zone 6b, a couple blocks from Lake Erie. Raised bed square foot gardens with automatic watering.
I've given up trying to grow these. The first year, they grew well and my husband really like them. For the past few years though, the roots don't grow at all and they bolt really fast. I mainly grow radishes because after they flower, the blossoms help attract beneficial bugs like parasitic wasps etc. I'd really rather to just let a few flower after eating most of them than *all* of the radishes bolting immediately. Fortunately my husband loves eating the pods that develop on the stalks. I'll be trying a different variety this year.
