Organic Miyashige Daikon Radish

Read reviews or write a review
48-55 days to harvest Raphanus sativus

Perfect for kimchi, stir fries, pickles and salads, we crave these crisp & juicy white roots and love their lime green shoulders. Long and narrow, like deliciously living icicles, Miyashige often grows 16 inches long in rich, loose soil. We enjoy fall-grown daikon fresh from our cellar all winter long, though most of the roots overwinter in crocks of lusciously crunchy kimchi.

Like watermelon radish, resist sowing daikon in spring: with longer days to harvest than petite ‘salad’ radishes, daikon grow spicy, pithy and small when they mature into the heat of summer. Here at Fruition in Zone 5, we sow daikon and watermelon radishes in late July/early August so they can mature crisp, juicy roots as the temps cool.
