Do you know why my radishes that were supposed to be round looking on the package picture.But turned out to have alot of green top and long thin radish (like a carrot). Are they lacking something? Thank you, Lisa

Radishes can be either long or round. If yours are long, the package may have been missmarked, or they grew much too fast and ended up elongated instead of round. Hot weather can do that. Try growing them in the early spring or early fall when the weather is cooler. Regardless of how they look, they will taste the same.
