Daimaru is a firm, large, round turnip--‘dai’ meaning big and ‘maru’
meaning round. Developed in the early 1700s in Kyoto from a
turnip in the Ōmi area (North of Kyoto), it is one of the most beautiful
turnips we found in Japan. It has a very pink skin color and a
creamy interior sprinkled with hot pink. It is incredibly delicious
and has many uses, such as being sliced very thin and pickled with
sugar, vinegar, and salt. A round turnip about 4” wide with green
leaves and red petioles. Harvest 60 days after sowing.
