How many radishes do you get per plant?
How many radishes will one plant produce? One radish seed produces only one radish plant and one radish plant produces only one radish. Luckily, radishes grow very quickly, so if you want a lot of radishes, just plant a lot of seeds, and you will have an abundance of radishes in three to four weeks.
Are there male and female radishes?
Radish flowers are hermaphrodite, which means that they have both male and female organs. Most are self-sterile: the pollen from the flowers of one plant can only fertilize another plant. In order to ensure good pollination it is better to grow several plants. The plants are therefore allogamous.
How long do radishes take to grow?
Garden radishes are usually ready for harvest three to five weeks after planting. You can pull them any time they reach a usable size. They will get fibrous and develop a strong taste if left in the ground too long.
