Growing Radish

Hi!! Would anyone be able to give some advice as to why my radishes when I picked them today, found that the base of them were split and not very healthy looking, rough skin? Could there be an issue in the soil? Thanks in advance.

A bit of a contradiction - splitting maybe too wet and tough could be too dry. I find I grow the best radishes in the winter - a light watering each day.

I picked some today - rough looking, probably a bit tough. They are longer than the winter ones - the root seems to be growing longer in search of water even though I water them every day or two. The winter ones are a lot better looking.
