How many radishes?

Asked June 23, 2016, 9:32 AM EDT

How many radishes should I expect to get if I planted 100 seeds at the end of April, the soil is suitable ( ph about 7, good drainage, 10-10-10 fertilizer, and lots of compost ), the plants receive full sun half of the day and light shade half of the day, and the weather is average or normal for Charles County Maryland except for above average rainfall in May?

Radishes are full sun plants. We do not see resources recommending radishes in even part shade.

Radishes can be a bit finicky. They must not be crowded. And, though in a hot, sunny spring they may tolerate a bit of shade, when we have a cool spring with lots of cloudy days, the roots will not swell into edible radishes. You can always eat the greens.
