Heirloom Daikon CHINESE CELESTIAL WHITE Radish -- 500 Seeds
Raphanus sativus - Open Pollinated
55 days. All season radish, used as winter radish. Mild and crisp flavor. Roots grow to 8" long and 3" across. Daikons are popular in many Asian cuisines. Yummy pickled! Healthy greens. Roots can be stored for weeks.
WHEN TO GROW: Daikon radishes prefer cool temperatures and unlike most varieties of radish, which grow very quickly, they need more time to fully mature. For this reason, they are best if planted in the late summer, so they can mature during the cooling weather of the fall. Plant about 2 months before the first frost of the fall. They can also be planted in the spring, particularly in more mild climates, once the soil can be worked or about 2 weeks prior to the last frost of the winter. Daikon radishes can also be grown over winter in southern climates.
