Radishes prefer a deep light soil well amended with organic matter. Fertilizing, if any, should be light on the nitrogen. Most important to good radish production is the season. Late summer and fall-sown seeds produce better radishes than spring-sown seed. Ideal growing temperature is 60 deg F to 65 deg F. Did you plant during your warm season? That might be the problem. Hope this info helps.
