Juicy, crunchy long white roots for raw eating, cooking, and pickles. Excellent pickled.

Daikon is a fall crop, overwintering in zone 7. Can be grown in spring below 40 latitude.

Very easy to grow if you plant in August or later.

Excellent for opening up a heavy soil, unfazed by clay. Can share a bed with garlic or leeks.

BOTANICAL NAME: Raphanus sativus var. longipinnatus

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS: 

Start as early as ground can be worked. Plant seeds 6" apart or broadcast carefully, covering with ┬╝" of fine soil firmly pressed down. Matures in 8-12 weeks. Be sure to keep growing continuously, and harvest when crowns are 1" or more in diameter. Will not do well under drought conditions, stagger planting for continuous harvest. Root may grow over 1' long.

Harvest when crowns are 1" or more in diameter. Carefully remove them with a fork - as radishes are brittle. Cut tops 2" above the crowns, wash and refrigerate. Ideally store the roots at 32F and 95% humidity where they can be stored for 6-10 weeks.
