Question: Are radishes considered monocots or dicots?
Quick Answer: Taxonomists classify radishes as dicots.
Why are Radishes Considered Dicots?
Radishes are dicots because their seeds contain two embryonic leaves. When sprouted, two tiny leaves will first appear. These nourish the young plant through the process of photosynthesis until roots, and true leaves can develop.
