No other vegetable stirred my childhood imaginations like the "Giant Radish" of Japan. It was grown on the Island of Sakurajima since around 1800, and is still famous in South Japan for its fine flavor and mammoth size. Some specimens have reached 100 lbs! But it commonly grows to 15 pounds in its native land. It is started arround the first of September and harvested in mid-winter. Fine texture and size make this the “King of Daikons.”

What are the pros? 100% germination rate

What are the cons? No radish root - just leaves

Review:

I certainly didn't expect 100-pound radishes (although one can dream, right?)... After multiple attempts (fall & early spring), this experiment delivered less than ideal results. Unfortunately, this didn't even grow 100 ounces (or even 1 ounce, for that matter). At least the germination rate was stellar and you can eat the greens. I still have most of the pack left & will try again this fall with different soil chemistry. So far, though, I'm not impressed with this one. Considering half my garden is from BC, this is a rare negative outlier.

Huge Great taste

What are the pros? Good flavor

What are the cons? not as large as hoped

Review:

The flavor of this radish is amazing. The best tasting radish I have tried! The size is fairly large, but not a large as I hoped for(as said on the seed packet). did not get very much leaf growth here in Nebraska, but that could be because I should have planted it in August instead of September. A must try. Anyone will love this radish. Will definitely grow again.

What are the pros? Taste and size!

What are the cons? not always as large as said

Review:

The size of this radish is astounding! Though they are not consistently as large as said on the description, I normally got 3-4 pound radishes. The taste is very crisp, yummy, and mild. I was very impressed with this radish. I recommend not growing in the spring, just in the fall. Will undoubtedly grow again.

What are the pros? Flavor

What are the cons? Very tricky to time the seedin

Review:

Tricky to grow radishes. I almost gave up on them, I did seed them twice in the spring and got no root, big leaves and flowers. Last fall is September decided to try again and got few bulbs the size of my fist. The ones I started October did not give roots. Will see I will try next year to seed them mid August. The flavor is good and I like them better then black radishes.

What are the pros? It's an attractive plant.

What are the cons? No radish

Review:

This plant looks interesting in the garden, but I had very little success getting an edible root out of it. It might do better if you add a ton of nitro to your soil. I think I'll just pick another radish.
