Rat's Tail Radish

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? Great flavor, unique, prolific

What are the cons? Short harvest, tedious to pick

Review:

This was are first year growing these and we really enjoyed the Rat's tail radishes! They are refreshing! They sold great at farmers market and people came back wanting more. The harvest lasted for about 4 weeks in the heat of summer. Definitely need some sort of support. We are planning to grow a lot more of these next year!

What are the pros? Thrives on neglect

What are the cons? Too many to use all them!

Review:

These are amazing. Quick germination, was putting them into salads in a month's time. They reseeded themselves last spring and they're so prolific it's hard not to take them for granted.

What are the pros? Very productive, attracts bees

What are the cons? woody when old, hard to see

Review:

We planted some of these in the middle of summer when normal radishes tend to not do very good. These radishes proceeded to produce a huge number of pods to eat. At least 15-20 per plant. No problem with insects like normal radishes, and the flowers attracted the local bees like crazy. There are only 2 minor issues with them. First, as mentioned, if they get too big, they get stringy to the point of being inedible. Also, since the pods are the same color as the stems, it can get hard to find them all to pick. You can go over the plants 2-3 times and later still find ones you missed. We will probably be planting nothing but these radishes from now on.

What are the pros? Great edible showpiece!

What are the cons? Stem has sharp prickers.

Review:

This plant has lots of surprises, besides the edible pods. You can let the plants go to maturity and save seeds for next year. Bees love the light lavender flowers. But the big surprise comes when you dig up a large mature plant. It has a huge root a lot like a daikon radish. Wash off and peel. It has a nice radish flavor, milder than ordinary radishes!

What are the pros? yummy

Review:

love this little radish. grew singara rat's tail radish and this one to compare. this one is crunchier than singara. both are easy to grow and fun to pick and eat. don't have to wash dirt off them like underground radishes. it's like eating a radish popcorn snack. makes great pickles as does the singara. seems like just the chickens like to eat their leaves (but they don't eat the radishes). haven't found bugs on them yet. :)
