What healthy radishes actually look like

We don’t even know what healthy plants actually look like anymore. Wait, I just said that recently. Oh well, it is worth repeating.

These were radishes from our product test plots at AEA in 2011. Six weeks after planting the radishes without the tops weighed an average of 9 ounces each. They were sweet, crisp, and clear all the way through. No bitterness, no woodiness, and no splitting.

This is what healthy radishes are supposed to look like.
