Stand back! This vigorous growing Japanese Daikon type radish produces white necked roots up to 45 cm (18″) long and 6 cm (2.5″) in diameter often weighing over 454 g (1 lb)! Despite its large size, the flesh is finely textured, mild flavoured, juicy and crisp. If you didn’t like radishes before, you will after tasting this one!
How to Grow
90-100 seed/gram Sow early varieties in a sunny site as soon as the ground is workable in the spring. Winter radishes are generally sown in mid-summer. Sow seed every two weeks 12 mm (1/2″) deep and about 2.5 cm (1″) apart in rows about 30 cm (12″) apart. Keep soil evenly moist during germination and growth. Harvest in 3-4 weeks when the roots have reached the size of a large marble. One packet sows approximately 6 m (20’) of row.
