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.

I did pickle the pods, but to be honest, what I liked best about these are the flowers! They attracted good insects and were just lovely plants to have in my garden!

Review:

The first time I planted it, it took a long time to come up. It finally did, and then produced flowers but no fruit was set. BCREEK didn't know why; all my other plants were pollinated. I replanted, and then with time I got tons of pods! I did find that the tips can be tough as well as the pod where it is attached to the stem, so I would cut those parts off. Pick smaller pods too, as they can be m;ore tender. It has a great radish taste! Especially nice here in Colorado, where regular radishes tend to bolt and get woody.

Review:

Since radishes never seem to grow well in my Cleveland OH garden, I tried this variety. I planted a few dozen next to trellises in an area of rich soil that received about 6 hours of daily sun exposure. Within a couple of months, I had more rat's tail radish than I knew what to do with. For my own consumption, probably only a half dozen plants would've been enough. Staking or trellises weren't needed because the plant is sturdy enough to grow in a fairly straight pattern. It had a nice, bitey, radish taste.

Review:

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.

Review:

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
