The amazing edible-podded radish, this variety produces loads of tender, large seed pods that add a delicious flavor to salads and stir-fries, also superb pickled. We have collected seed in Thailand for this old Asian heirloom that was grown in US gardens in the 1860s. A real gourmet treat.

What are the pros? Easy to grow
What are the cons? none
One of the plants still producing in the brutal Texas heat. Just picked some tonight. I use them as I would mild peppers or raw in salads. I will plant more next time and try pickling. This also did well in a large pot.

What are the pros? Easy and big
What are the cons? None
First year growing and the directions said they need support. Put a 4 ft tomato cage around my plants and found that was not enough support. These things get huge, planted six plants,"What was I thinking?" I am overrun with rat tail radishes. Lucky they are delish!!!
I will be growing again to be sure. Next time I will give them more room and plant only three plants for personal use

I think the Rat Tail name puts some people off of these. Super prolific, can take all kinds of abuse from poor / uneven watering to terrible soil. Had plants blossom 3 times in a MN season. Re-seed themselves fairly aggressively. Incredible "bang for the buck". Fooled several chefs with them, thought they would be beans, became instant fans.

These keep going and going, luckily as my market customers can't get enough of these. Try them raw with a cheese dip or in salads, or the flavor is a bit milder when cooked in stir-fries or stews.

This was one of the nice surprises in the garden this past summer. The pods are eaten and there isn't a radish bulb below. They taste just like radishes, but unlike radishes, they continue to produce as you pick them. The pods are about the size of thin beans. I plant in succession with about 9 plants planted at a time near the holes in the drip irrigation. They can be spaced about half that distance, but I don't feel like it. As soon as they sprout, I plant the next round.Regular radishes planted late often go to seed without forming a radish. With these, it's a good thing as the seed is the part eaten.I'll be ordering more soon.
