Why is my harvested radish looking deformed?
Make sure that you have not grown radish in clayish heavy soil. In heavy soils, deformed forked roots with fibrous laterals are produced.
Why am I not getting proper radish roots?
Make sure that you have used a sufficient sized container with depth of at least 2 to 14 inches. Also avoid adding nitrogen fertilizers in the later stages of plant growth for better root formation.
