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? prolific, good bee plant

What are the cons? none

Review:

this is a great radish it grows fast and tastes great it seems to like similar conditions to peas or beans and needs support(although i had 2 plants that did not need support and which produced the most i'm glad i saved the seeds)it is also a supreme bee and pollinator plant(there were always honey bees,solitary bees,bumble bees and butterflies on it all day)so much so that i am considering a mass planting for bee forage.i think it is possible to have 2 or 3 crops a year on the same ground which opens up possibilities for green manure,catch crops or animal fodder also the seeds seem like they might have some use as chicken food but they are pretty time consuming to harvest.

Review:

I found this radish when searching for a radish that would grow well in hot summer weather. The first year I planted it I planted a whole row .. mistake! I was amazed at the growth of these plants. This year I planted a fewer number of plants and used tomato cages to keep them a bit more upright. Still very prolific and I just cut them back to see if they continue to produce more. So far, our favorite way to enjoy them is to snack on them when they are small. Will try to pickle some of the slightly larger ones this year and am searching for recipes for cooked radishes to try them that way. For us, once they reach a serious "pod" size, they are not as flavorful raw so want to try them some other way.

Review:

I grew these for the first time this year mostly out of curiosity. WOW!! First, I LOVE the taste. They're good for eating by themselves, and mixed in salads. I've given some away, and a friend said, "Those are great! Everyone is asking, 'Where did he get the seeds for these?'" Second, VERY productive! I've picked WAY more than we can possibly eat in meals and snacks. I'm pickling a lot now, and that will probably be our salvation. My wife told me, "Maybe you shouldn't have planted so many." I told her, "Well, I know that NOW!" I had no idea how prolific they are. I'm planting them again, for sure.

Review:

Grew these for the first time this year. Planted about 10 plants. All came up healthy and strong. Each has so many raddish pods I can't give them out fast enough. These taste exactly like a regular raddish but with a tiny extra little kick. The butterflies love the flowers of these plants.
