How deep can radish roots go?

GroundHog Radish at 6 weeks 001

I imagine that the finer roots went deeper than 15"...and maybe much deeper from what I am learning!

After 6 weeks my GroundHog Radish is around 12″ deep and 1″ in circumference at the top.  How deep can radish roots go?  Because we need to know things like that I have been doing quite a bit of research.  The attached chart shows how deep some radishes can go…over 4 feet deep!  WOW!

Research done in the 1950's shows Early Scarlet Turnip White-tipped radish roots can go over 4' deep!
