Use these fresh in salads or cook them in soups and stews.

Planting & Care

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.

Bolts quickly at 7000ft

I LOVE daikon, especially chopped up in morning eggs. So when I saw these seeds, I was so excited to try growing them here in Arizona- 35 degrees North latitude at 7000ft. I planted a row in my organic garden every week during April and May. A couple rows fell victim to a spring Flea beatle outbreak, but the rest of the daikon weathered the storm. Late June hit and every last one of them bolted. The leaves were small, the flowers were few and the roots were practically non existant, too small to be eaten. I had saved some seeds and planted the last of them during our monsoon season (July through Sept). Even with the rains, no luck. They bolted. I won't try these again, as they don't seem to be adapted to our high and dry climate.

My radishes were huge, up to 22". Some of them were pithy and others were solid and sweet. I enjoyed the adventure of growing these and was pleased with the germination rate.
