Diakons are one of my garden favorites. Most of what I harvest end up going into the fermenter.
This year, I'm moving my diakons out of my beds. They're just to powerful and destroy my bottom weed barriers.

Yes, I grew both white icicles and Daikons.  Very similar, Daikons larger and a bit milder, but very close!  White icicle juicier, a bit more crisp. Love my radishes!  Can't wait for my first sandwich....butter, salt, radishes.   Yum!

My daikons didn't come up. Sad If we ever get finished with winter, I'll replant.

My parents were Depression kids.  They grew up on egg sandwiches, onion sandwiches, and radish sandwiches!  All had buttered bread, salt, and filling which was a veggie.  Sometimes a cucumber too!    We loved them as kids, it was a Sunday afternoon thing, after dad had a few Pabst Blue Ribbons!  Lol!

Can't believe how fast the Daikon radishes are growing! They are really enjoying the cool rainy weather we have had ever since the seeds were planted. The plants are already about 3" tall, so it won't be long before we start pulling a radish here and there for salads. The Cherry Belle & Champion Radishes are coming along, too, but not nearly as well as the Daikon are.  Hopefully we'll have enough Daikon radishes this year to make some Radish Pickles. Last year it turned hot too soon, and the radishes just bolted to seed.

They aren't very small.  They are Summer Cross No. 3, and they grow about 18" deep if allowed to, but we don't like them that big. We start harvesting when they are about 8" long. Over time we have learned that when the tops are about 8" tall it is time to pull the roots. Last year we made Daikon Chips in the air fryer, and were they ever delicious!

The original recipe for them that came with the air fryer was titled "Low Carb Keto Air Fryer Radish Chips".   There is one problem with them, though - you can't stop eating them!  LOL

I'm radish-impaired. More than half of mine -- any variety -- any season -- any location -- get leggy and don't produce pods, but Hubby loves radishes, and doesn't care how hot they get, so, from now on, I'll let them all go. If they produce radishes, fine. If not, he can eat the pods. happy turtle

Hmm, eat the leaves? Really? Gotta learn more about this. My plants are beautiful, but don't usually form bulbs. I always use the leaves for mulch when the plant fails. If Hubby will eat them, that would be awesome!

Update: I tried a couple -- two different sizes -- 2 different varieties. They just tasted like most other greens. Nice to know I have something else to use when I run out of lettuce. Daikon radishes? - Page 4 1280598131

Planted daikon last fall.  Poor germination, but I did get two of them.  The tops are starting to get up there and it looks like they may be bolting already.  But ... from sticking my finger in the soil, I can't feel anything like a radish root.  That's a shame, since they've been in the ground since at least October.  And it makes me wonder ... what could I have done any differently?

What makes radishes bulb or not bulb?
I had a similar experience. I planted daikons and Chinese fruit radishes in an SFG bed with carrots last fall. I only got 1 or 2 stunted radish plants, but the carrots are doing fine.

That's part of my problem -- I didn't know the difference, so, when I was successful, I probably planted the right kind at the right time, and when I failed, I probably didn't. Embarassed This time, I will do my homework. study

I just grow the daikon microgreens.  The microgreens taste like radishes but are very mild.  This batch can be harvested now or wait a few more days to have more growth.  These were planted 6 days ago.

My Daikons and Fruit radishes failed again -- this time the seeds didn't even sprout. Since my de Jours and Rat's Tails are doing so well, and they're so quick and easy, I think I'll say "never mind" to the Daikons. Evil or Very Mad

Sad to see that. Daikon radishes seem to be one of the easiest plants for me to grow here - they all seem to sprout in a matter of 3 or 4 days.  I grow the Field Daikon during the winter months, and the Japanese Daikon during the summer months. We are now eating the winter ones we pulled and stored earlier in the winter.
