Sowing: Watermelon radish is winter radishes; you should plant it about two months before the first expected fall frost. Plant the radish deep directly into fertile soil about two months before the first expected fall frost, 1/2 "deep and 1" apart, thin the seedlings 4-6". To ensure a consistent crop, plant seeds every two weeks.

How and When to Harvest Watermelon Radish: Watermelon radishes can be harvested at any time up to their mature size of 3". The flavor is sweet and crisp; they also store well for the winter.
Watermelon Radishes Seed Saving: Radishes are cross-pollinated with all other radish varieties and should be isolated half a mile from different types. When the radishes are fully ripe and have a flowering stem, wait for the pods to form and turn brown. Dry the pods for a few days, thresh the seeds. Store radish seeds in a cool, dry place for five years.
