    We grew these late summer into fall and got a great result. Be sure your soil is nice and loamy not compacted for best growth. We’ve chopped some up for stirfry and picked most of them with carrots. Can’t wait to grow more!

    These are a fall crop for me in SW Virginia, because our springs have heat waves that cause them to bolt. I absolutely love daikons, and often use them as potato substitute. I especially love to shred them up for hashbrown casserole! Just be sure to squeeze out the excess water content.

    My favorite radish. The flavor is amazing. If you only ate daikon from the super market it is not the same, the difference in flavor is night and day. I chop it into chunks, mix it in a bowl with olive oil, parsley/cilantro, salt, and cayenne pepper, then oven bake it.

    Unlike other radishes, daikon have a long growing season and require about 60 days for a good size harvest. It is a big plant in term of radish, I personally sow the seeds at least one foot apart. Since it have so much leaf mass it’s good to reuse the leaves for making compost or as mulching. I’ve grown it in Florida so it can tolerate the heat with adequate watering, but with more sun it will be spicier.

    These have performed really well for me. Huge roots grow fairly fast and make delicious Asian dishes.

    Nearly 100% germination. Fast growing. Will definitely buy again. Grew in pots in both San Antonio TX and Washington DC with success.

    First time trying this kind of radish-it grew like crazy! Loved the beautiful look of the greens above ground, and when we let one or two bolt the flowers looked pretty as well!

    This was my first attempt at growing any kind of fall crop. I historically do not even like radishes because they are too hot for me to eat, but this Daikon radish is AWESOME. It is easy to grow, forgiving of frigid temperatures and more mild than a typical red radish. The whole plant is edible. Last night we ate a salad of Daikon greens with sliced Daikon root and other veggies. My husband, who usually just tolerates a salad, said, “This is actually good.” And one more thing: my garden has heavy clay type soil with a thin layer of improved soil on top. The Daikon radish didn’t care, it burrowed right in and did it’s wonderful thing!

    Decent radishes, tends to bolt in spring plantings, so better suited for fall/winter harvests. Grew one that was 10in long in only about 60 days

    These are perfect for winter crop in Dallas, I have tried growing during spring and it never worked. It bolted before it gets mature due to high temperature. I tried this year and it is amazing. Even the greens are edible.
