Would you ever grow.... one of these?

Giant Radishes

Sakurajima Radish D07dccfc-s

Yes, my friends. Those giant white things laying on the ground are....radishes! Giant Sakurajima Daikon Radishes, to be exact. They can grow to be 100 pounds!

I'm so intrigued... And yet, I don't think my SFG is deep enough or big enough. I looked them up, and they take 80 from seed to harvest. Oh, but they look so interesting! Maybe I'll put them out in the yard somewhere...

Wowzers, littlesapphire! I think you could feed several whole neighborhoods with just one of those radishes!

just remember those if we have a radish contest. You could always build a special box.

I don't know. It is probably dry, hot and stringy. Nah, I'll stick to my marble-sized radishes, thanks!

Actually, they're rather mild and not at all stringy. They're wonderful in soups and stews, as well as raw and pickled. Very Happy

50 Seeds $3.50

Lets see 50 seeds X 100 lbs per plant would be 5,000 lbs of radish!

God Bless Ward and Mary, where the hurricane is bring lots of rain.

Lol, you guys are so funny! I will have to slyly suggest a radish growing contest next year and plant them. That would be very fun Twisted Evil

I may just go for it then! I've heard that they're pretty good, much like a regular daikon radish (which is sweet rather than spicy like western radishes are). Even if I just grow one, that would more than pay for the packet of seeds.

Now, see, I though daikon was the *hot* spicy component of kimchi?

Tried these last year, but wasn't particularly successful; I've grown bigger daikons. I sowed 9 weeks before first expected frost (early August) and let them overwinter with protection. They did pretty well for awhile, but I think the warm/cold swing between February and March finally did them in. I gave up and pulled them today. One is small, the other isn't that much bigger and is riddled with holes.  I guess I'll try starting a few weeks sooner this year.
