Seed Saving Instructions: Radishes will cross-pollinate and must be isolated by 1/2 mile or planted in insect proof cages covered with screen. Radish seed stalks will grow up to 3' tall. Always discard the early bolting plants, since they are not the best plants to save for seed. The seed stalk is harvested when the stalk and pods are dry. Seeds can then be separated by hand.
