The "hotness" of radishes results from the length of time they have grown rather than from their size. The radishes either grew too slowly or are too old. You might try planting your seeds a little later in the year. Here are some good varieties to try: Burpee White (25 days to harvest; round; smooth white skin); Champion (28 days, large, round, red); Cherry Belle (22 days, round, red); Cherry Queen Hybrid (24 days, deep red, round, slow to become pithy); Early Scarlet Globe (23 days; globe-shaped, small taproot, bright red); Easter Egg (25 days; large, oval; color mix includes reddish purple, lavender, pink, rose, scarlet, white); Fuego (25 days; round, red; medium tops; resistant to fusarium, tolerant to blackroot/black scurf);
Plum Purple (25 days, rounded, large, deep magenta); or Snow Belle (30 days, attractive, round, white, smooth).
