I looked down at my pretty batch of radishes with their bright pink selves poking up through Mel's mix and noticed that one of them was split, so I pulled it out. It wasn't all that big - maybe an inch - so I pulled out a few others that were even bigger. Of the 4 I pulled out, 2 had splits in them. What am I doing wrong? Can I save the rest of them?

Howey: The easy answer is - you and your plants are OK. I have some radishes each year split. I never have figured out why. They all taste the same though.
God Bless, Ward and Mary.

If they went through a dry spell during the growing season and then got more water later on in the growing season (especially nearing maturity) this can cause them to split I believe.
