Radish seed crop

Planted several types of Fall radishes last Fall. The 'Long Black Spanish' and 'Roseheart' did well enough that I dug and kept some over winter in the fridge. I replanted these in the Spring and they've both flowered and set seed. I'm hoping that the bees have intercrossed the two varieties. I'm picturing hybrids that are both black-skinned and pink-fleshed. We'll see.
Here are the pods from 'Long Black Spanish' (there were only about a third this many 'Roseheart' pods)
