Review:

sowed 10seed in a little patch some years ago but forgot about them. years later i go back i find a very stange plant growing that is full of seeds. after checking what radish looked like i found out that those were radish seed from those same plant i sowed back in summer year past. i got a box full of seeds from those plant. planted them in rows, about 200. waited to the end of summer (50~ days later) to harvest. about 80% of plant had eatable roots. the rest didnt have any and were only leaves. i let 2 of them seed and kept them for this year. the radish have a very nice color, even very big 3-6inch diameter they are still very crunchy without any woody feeling. the leaves are very rough with spike on them, they are supposed to be comestible but i dont see how. they need alot of water or they get very spicy. i found that slicing them on a plate and letting them air out for 30min remove the hotnest. DO NO FREEZE THEM, i did and they turn to mush. my soil is very hard clay.
