Raddish-Harvest and storage

European type of radish will be ready for harvesting within 30 days from sowing. Asiatic types will be ready for harvest within 45 to 60 days from sowing.

At harvesting stages roots are mild, tender and crisp. They will be of proper marketable size. Roots must be harvested before they become pithy, bitter and fibrous.

A light irrigation may be given before harvesting to facilitate lifting of roots. The roots are washed, graded and tied in bunches.
