You can't always tell

the size of a radish

from the foliage. Some

bushy plants shoot up

from scant roots. Some

smaller tops sprout from

big, round, scarlet radishes.

tell a book by its cover. I say

if you trim off the tops and tap roots

against your thumb, use a dull knife

and don't slide the blade.
