Young daikon radishes are often used shredded in sushi, but their light, slightly spicy flavor is a unique addition to many other dishes. Mature daikon is pickled or cooked; add to stir-fries or soups for crunch. Daikon is a winter radish, requiring shortening day length and cool temperatures to form. Sow after mid-summer or fall depending on your growing season. Deep roots are also used as a cover crop to break up heavy soils. Stores well.

A bit earthy

4 out of 5 stars Jan 27, 2021
These grow like crazy fall /winter 8b- raised bed- direct seed, they are mildly spicy but they get earthy when they get large. Might be great pickled?

Still Waiting

2 plants appeared last year but never matured; saving their seeds. Planted more seeds this year & hoping for at least 5 plants that are starting to show.

Owner Response: Hi Marie, As you might have noticed on its seed packet, these are winter radishes and will only create a large root if they are grown in the shortening days of mid-summer and fall. If they are grown in spring they will not form a root before bolting (flowering).

I planted these and they germinated and sprouted plants very well...the only problem was my kiddos couldn't wait to harvest them. They grew quite big and were delicious. I recommend them.

I Recommend Diakon Radish Seeds

5 out of 5 stars Dec 26, 2021
I recommend Diakon Radish seeds as a cover crop and soil improver. I planted mine in July. Today is December and they are still alive and green at -2 degrees C. Soon I will cut the tops off and they will rot in the soil.

I grew these because I heard they can be used as a cover crop, my focus was to have them naturally till the soil and allow them to decompose to improve the soil. I let them go to seed and ate the seed pods which are really good and the birds love them too. I actually haven't tasted the roots myself but I hope to do so the next time I grow them. Some are popping back up from the seeds that were left behind from last season.
