Not only the type but very importantly how long since they were harvested. When they were harvested had they absorbed all the water their little cells could hold?
I know some farm owners who grow acres of market crops.
The one thing they are all determined to do is make sure any veg. they are selling weigh as much as possible AKA lots of water on the fields in the days prior to harvesting.
If the radish doesn't reach the chef for a week or so which is often the case the radish can weigh half of what it weighed when fresh harvested.
