Description

Radish - Daikon - Raphanus sativus

Hardy Annual Heirloom. The big roots of the Daikon radish make it a clod-busting cover crop, but it’s also a tasty table radish with a mild flavor. The flowers are now popular with chefs as edible garnishes on soups and salads. These look more like white carrots than radishes, growing up to 16" long. Use these fresh in salads or cook them in soups and stews.

Did You Know? Daikon means "big root" in Japanese.

Soil & Water: Radishes prefer well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter. They have low nutrient requirements; especially avoid excess nitrogen to promote good root development. Preferred soil pH is 6.0-7.0.

Planting & Growing: Cool weather is needed for best development. Sow seed directly in fall or early spring. Radishes make good, living row markers for slower germinating crops like carrots.

Harvesting & Storage: Daikon radishes may be brittle, so use care when digging up with a fork or pulling. Cut tops 2" above crowns, wash, and refrigerate up to 2 weeks.

Excellent germination

I direct seeded these Daikon radish and had sprouts in a couple of days -- here in zone 7A -- where spring has been 10-15 degrees warmer than usual.

Healthy Organic Daikon

This is a vegetable that is really good for you and I am even going to give it a go at pickling some for my refrigerator. It is great to eat along with your meal and with the pickled ones, they go yummy in sushi.
