What are the pros? Easy to grow, very prolific.
What are the cons? None
Everyone said these are prolific and they certainly are. Once the rat's tails start forming you can pick some daily. Being this was my first experience with these I only planted a 5ft row. They are so prolific I give some to neighbors and still have more than we can eat. I like to eat them immediately after picking so some never make it in the house. They taste very similar to a traditional radish. I also like to saute them in butter until they just start to get crispy. Very good.
You may want to stake them as they became a tangled mess after a strong storm. Even so it has not affected production.

What are the pros? Fast, prolific, easy to grow
What are the cons? too spicy for kids
Grows like a weed, even in mediocre soil. Tons of spicy pods! Plants looked like a pile of green spaghetti. Made a nice companion plant with pole beans in a trellis garden.

What are the pros? Yummy. Prolific. Unkillable.
I had a whole tray of seedlings knocked off a table by my toddler and land face down. They got mixed up (I'm a first time gardener and couldn't wasn't sure which were what) and most died anyway from broken stems.
However, a few mystery sprouts survived and I planted them in my mystery section. They turned out to be these.
After I planted them, they seemed to grow about six inches every time I looked at them. Honestly, they almost feel like dealing with animals than with plants - rambunctious. A good watering and they just explode. Of the early ones, one grew like crazy and is throwing pods left and right. I pick it every couple days and always get a big handful. Still, they never make it into the house, my toddler and I just stand there in the garden and stuff our faces straight off the plant. The other early ones are starting to produce as well, and I've planted six more, so I'll soon be rolling in radish pods. I can't wait to pickle them.
So far, these are my favorite.
What are the pros? very prolific. grows easily
What are the cons? inconsistent spicyness
My friends and I love these rat tails. Some are spicier than others, but all have that radish flavor. I like them in salads and put them in stir fries, and cooking seems to mellow them out some. I have a feeling they would be delicious pickled. Just a couple of plants will give you lots of rat tails, they are very prolific, and they like a foot or more of space in each direction as they grow big. I planted 6 and have hundreds of rat tails. The tails grow surprisingly fast. Another plus, they grow clean, not in the dirt like regular radishes, so one can eat them fresh, right off the plant. Not to worry, though, you will still have plenty to take into the house, plenty.

What are the pros? No fuss.
What are the cons? Chickens love them
Easy to grow, fun and yummy. Stalks need staking or will lie on the ground but still produce. After 5 weeks, produced 18 inch long, 1/2 pencil width pods. Really rat tail resemblance (thus the appropriate name??). Green bean like texture with radish flavor. A couple pods hot, others mild. Love them!
