I planted several daikon radish seeds about 6 weeks ago and they all got off to a great start. Not surprisingly, they all bolted because of the heat we have been experiencing.
If I cut the flowers and stem off will the radish keep growing?
Thanks in advance.

Mine have always bolted also even regardless of the temperature. Worth a try... but my guess is it will keep trying to reproduce.

Once they bolt they are done.

Ok thanks, I kind of thought they were done but hoping. Will wait for cooler temps.

Always start radish after the longest day. Starting before then will always cause them to bolt regardless of the temperatures.
