Are these seeds?

This is a question for those seed collectors out there. I was out in the garden the other day and saw that one of the radishes had these pod like growths. I have never seen anything like this before, so I was wondering are these seeds? Have you seen this before? Do you know what it is? I bet Mr. Brown Thumb knows, he's so knowledgeable of all things seeds.
At first glance I thought it was a butterfly's chrysalis, but it's not. It's actually growing from the stalk of the radish plant.


  1. That definitely looks like a seed pod!

  2. Interesting. Will be glad when you find out.

  3. It is the seed pod. The fresh seeds are edible and sometimes used to spice up salads.

  4. Looks like a seed pod to me!
    When you crack one open be sure to let us know how many seeds are inside!

  5. It looks like a seed pod to me as well. Interesting that you can eat them.


We love to hear from you. Thanks for leaving a comment!
