Amazing bean-like pods! A delicacy in India, this radish does not produce an edible root, but a delicious, bean-like seed pod. The rat’s tail radish caused a sensation when introduced to the 1866 International Horticultural Expedition in London; wild claims of pods that can grow 3 inches a day and up to four feet in length astounded visitors. When discovered that the pods grow to just a few inches long, the rat’s tail radish’s 15 minutes of fame was mostly over. We are proud to introduce a truly unique rat’s tail variety from India that may be able to live up to the wild legend. These pods grew to over 14 inches in length at our Missouri trial gardens this year! Perfect for beginner or market gardeners; very heat tolerant and an extremely generous producer.

Review:

I really wanted to love this plant and had high hopes for it but it did not work for me. It grew like crazy once it got going but I just did not like the pods. They were tough and I was not crazy about the flavor or texture. I see some loved them so that is great. It grew like crazy but of course like other brassicas was just a magnet for the horrible harlequin bugs that are just a nightmare here so I took them out. Oh well, worth a try.

Review:

I planted these as part of a unique collection of veggies in our library P-Patch this year. They were amazing! Bees loved the flowers and it was fun convincing everyone that they were indeed Radish. I will plant them again next year, but far fewer and in a spot easier to harvest.

Review:

I discovered this interesting plant on Baker Creek's website and decided to give it a try. It is very easy to grow. I did not use any fertilizer, but it grew like crazy and quickly formed flowers and pods. The only thing that seemed important is sufficient watering, especially after flowers appear. Another thing I have learned is that they should be planted at least 30cm apart. I made a mistake by planting them too close together because the leaves were not big. However, as soon as they began to flower, I was surprised by the size of the flower heads and the amount of space they took. Eventually they formed a tangled mat of pods that made harvesting very difficult. If I had planted them farther apart, it would have made things much easier.

Review:

On May 22 I planted 4 or 5 seeds ~5 inches apart, under a large tomato cage. These grew aggressively, and within 5 weeks had completely filled and overflowed the cage. I'll plant again this week, probably only 1 plant per cage. The smaller pods can be mild, while the larger pods, nearing maturity are 12"-18" long, can have a good hot flavor, and are still tender and crispy, not fibrous. The young leaves are tender, and are also spicy and tasty. I added some of the pods to dilly refrigerator pickles, which were ok, but dilly beans and cukes personally appeal much more. Leaves and pods chopped up are good on salad. I plan to save seeds from year to year!
