Yikes, Ken! Most radishes are cool-weather plants that like 55°F to 85°F for germination and 50°F to 65°F for growing. Hot temps can cause radishes to bolt (go to seed) quickly. If they do grow, the radishes are liable to be bitter and ... well ... hot. At the very least, wait till it cools off at least a little. Better yet, try to find a hybrid that works fine in heat, such as Rover.
