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 were 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.

What are the pros? Fast, prolific, easy to grow

What are the cons? too spicy for kids

Review:

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.

Review:

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

Review:

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

Review:

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!

What are the pros? Strong vigorous growth, spicy

What are the cons? none

Review:

We planted these directly in the dirt beside our house, no special soil, and they sprouted rapidly and grew quickly and very soon bolted and flowered. The flowers were followed by seed pods that are quite spicy and tasty in salads.
