The Q&A Archives: Radish Seed Germination

Question: I am doing a project on factors that affect radish seed germination. I was wondering if you had any information on the affect of seeds and temperature? If you had any information that would be great! Thanks!

Answer: Raphanus sativus (radish) seeds are some of the most adaptable to soil conditions and will germinate at soil temperatures of 45F-85F. Some seeds are not as tolerant. For instance, seeds of corn and tomatoes require much warmer soil temperatures (70F-85F), and peas and lettuce will germinate at about 50F. Hope this information helps!
