Radish – Daikon

Raphanus sativus

This Japanese radish is 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 of hard soils and allow water and oxygen to get deep in the soil, feeding the soil life that is essential for good organic soils.  Learn more about using Daikons for soil improvement on our Youtube Channel. 

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.

Harvesting & Storage: Most radishes are best when young and immature, less than 1″ in diameter but Daikons can be tasty even when they get quite large. They may keep 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator.
