Radish – Daikon
These Japanese daikon radish seeds produce a mild and tasty annual. This top-quality variety is a kitchen essential. They are also a wonderful crop to improve soil structure! Their deep roots break up hard soils and allow water and oxygen to get deep in the soil, feeding the soil life that is essential for good organic soils. Their mild flavor and texture make them a great addition to many recipes, and we love to add it to our kimchi! Daikon Radishes do best in soil pH is 6.0-7.0. They love well-drained soil but are pretty easy to grow otherwise. Just be sure to avoid excess nitrogen! In about a month and a half to two months, you’ll have your own delicious, nutritious Daikon Radishes to enjoy!
Flavor profile: When you buy daikon radish seeds from San Diego Seed Company you’ll produce a raw daikon radish that has a sweet and lightly spicy flavor, and tends to be milder than a peppery red radish. The flesh is very crunchy and juicy. Cooked, daikon tastes mellow and sweet and becomes tender, similar to a cooked turnip. The greens are very peppery with a pungent flavor that mellows slightly when cooked.
Suggested Planting Requirements: Radishes prefer well-drained soil with plenty of added organic matter. They have low nutrient requirements; especially avoid excess nitrogen to promote good root development. Preferred soil pH is 6.0-7.0.
Growing Recommendations: Cool weather is needed for the best development. Sow seed directly wherever there is extra space in the garden. Radishes make good, living row markers for slower germinating crops like carrots.
