I have let some of my radish remain in the ground after maturing and they went on to grow long stems with bright white flowers which the honey bees loved.

They now have small pods appearing under the flowers and i would like to know if they contain radish seed.

I have opened one and there are small green pea-like seeds inside.

If these are the radish seed will i simply be able to store them and sow next spring?

I have taken photos but cant upload them since changing to this crap o2 mobile broadband.

Thanks.

yes these are radish seeds. Allow them to swell anddry before harvesting them and storing them over the Winter in a cool dry place until next Spring. if these plants were produced from F1 hybrids then the progeny could be varied and very disappointing.
