What are the pros? delicious, quick, big
What are the cons? none
I tried this variety for the first time this year and it's going on my must-plant list for every year in the future! These grew very large, very quickly. The greens were tasty, but it was the radish itself that stood out. SOOO good! Peppery and earthy at the same time when raw, but my favorite way to prepare was to slice them up and fry them in butter. They mellow out and get soft and creamy. I bet these would be awesome mashed, though I didn't plant enough to get to try that. I highly recommend.

What are the pros? Grew despite some neglect.
What are the cons? None. :^)
I pulled one of these today thinking it was a large turnip that had split (it had been in the ground for several months) but when I took a bite during slicing and dicing, I realized it wasn't! Had to check my garden log because I was confused!
Texture: creamy - no pithiness!
Flavor: Initial sweetness, followed by a snap of pepper that warms into a heat.
Greens: Haven't eaten them yet but have been snapping the outer ones off and feeding to the rabbits.
Serve: Imagine this would taste great sliced thin on a salty gluten-free almond cracker slathered with homemade mayo
Where & when planted:
Zone 8. Central Texas. Early winter. Harvested late Feb. Received irregular watering. Did not bolt when other radishes did during unseasonable heat. I

What are the pros? taste, size
These radishes grew well and grew large! Not to mention the somewhat spicy flavor that paired really well with beer. Excellent.

What are the pros? Easy to grow
What are the cons? Very large, needs space
Love these radishes. They grow very large but are a great traditional radish out of Munich. Sliced thin and salted, they go well with beer.

I'm not a fan of eating radishes, so I got these to prepare the bed for my squashes. The roots and tops are huge. I hadn't planted for years in the back part of the garden where I put these, and they have no issues growing long and wide. (I did till and add alfalfa meal/compost before planting.) I plucked out two this morning and the measurements include the stringy roots. One is 9" long with a 9" circumference. The other is a foot long with a 7" circumference. Also, living next to a corn field, I always have issues with abundant cucumber beetles and squash bugs destroying my squash. Radishes are a known trap crop for said bugs. Given how big these plants get, there is a lot of leaf to keep them away from my squashes (so far). I also found a dead japanese beetle on a leaf, but I don't know if the radish killed it or it just happened to die there.
