Daikon radish is popular throughout Asia for condiments, pickling, fermenting, relishes, stir-fries and salads. Crunchy raw Daikon has a sweet and lightly spicy flavor, and is milder than a standard red radish. The flesh becomes tender and mellow-tasting after cooking. Use the greens to add peppery, pungent flavor.
Sow direct in a sunny, well drained position. Cover, firm down and moisten. Thin to 3-5cm spacing after 2 weeks. Sow successive crops at 2 week intervals.
Cultivate soil well and mix in compost, Yates® Thrive® Natural Blood & Bone before sowing to help ensure a good crop. Weekly applications of Yates® Thrive® Fish Blood & Bone Plant Food will improve plant growth. Protect from snails and slugs.
Daikon prefers cooler temperatures, and will bolt to seed in hot conditions. Mulch well to retain even soil moisture.
Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
