Chinese Shawo Fruit Radish

Unique bright green radish from North China with sweet flavor. Known in Beijing as a fruit radish, the sweet roots are crisp and sweet, considered a tasty fruit substitute similar in texture and taste to pear. Northern Chinese winters are notoriously harsh; these long cylindrical radishes sweeten up when exposed to frost and make a nutritious mid-winter snack. This variety is traditionally offered as a sliced fresh “fruit” at Beijing tea parties in wintertime. These opulent tea parties are thrown to celebrate the famous Peking Opera. We also love this super sweet root as a winter time snack. Grows well in cool weather and is great for a fall planting. Plant about 60 days before frost in the late summer. Beautiful green goodness!

Review:

As other growers have said, I found this radish very spicy. I planted them in late August in western Montana and we've had a cool fall and they did great, outperforming Red Beauty, daikon, and watermelon radishes. Also a beautiful color. They went through several frosts before harvest and I was disappointed that they didn't match the flavor description at all! Straightforward radish spice. One review said they sweetened with long storage, so we'll try that next year.

Review:

These came out of the garden very spicy, but after about a month in storage I can now understand the product description. Much milder, with a hint of the fruitiness described.

What are the pros? Color. A lovely green.

Review:

Planted these in late summer as I heard they were fall radishes and was excited to try a sweet radish. They were not sweet. Not even a little bit. They were the spiciest radishes in the garden! By far! They had tons and tons of water so I'm not really sure what went wrong. Very pretty green color, though.

What are the pros? Lime green color

What are the cons? Bolted immediately

Review:

Planted early in cool weather but bolted almost as soon as it grew and the flavor was too hot to eat! Seemed like a total waste of space. Maybe I'll try again in almost winter conditions...maybe then it will be sweet?
