RADISH DAIKON HERITAGE

(ORIENTAL RADISH)

Raphanus Sativus

Daikon means “radish” in Japanese. This unusual radish will add intrigue to any garden and delicious taste to any table. Mild-flavored, Daikon Radish  is used in many Asian cuisines, in salads, shredded or pickled and served as garnish with Sashimi. Great keeping qualities, the roots which are 46 to 61cm long can be stored for weeks. It is   pure white and slightly tapered, the flesh is very crispy and tender with mild pungency. Can also be used in cooking & many recipes are available on the net. Sow Spring or Autumn.

Here we go again folks, enjoy and grow your own radishes, and also take care of your health..THE NATURES WAY.. 

Cheers for now.

    I just bought a selection of radish seeds including black radishes and daikon. My adult daughters both love Korean food and so do I and being able to grow something that we currently have to fork out big bickies for at the grocery shop is a large incentive to growing these delicious root veggies. Cheers for the posty share 🙂
