Harvesting Radish Seeds
Radishes are pollinated by bees and will cross readily with other radishes, so you should only allow one type to flower at a time. When selecting summer radishes for seed saving, select those with the best shape, size, and color. The seeds are yellow when mature, later turning to brown. Familiar red radishes produce green seedpods by midsummer. These pods will not split open when mature. When the pods turn brown pull up the plant and stack or hang them in a well-ventilated spot to dry. Remove the seeds by hand or put them in a sack and crush them (winnow). Heirloom radish seeds are harvested ANNUALLY.
