Botanical Interests Organic Daikon Radish Seeds
An exciting winter addition to salad or stir-fry, this Japanese radish is crisp, yet hearty and mild.
60 days. Young shredded daikon radishes are often used in sushi, but their light, crunchy, slightly spicy flavor is a unique addition to many other dishes. Mature daikon is pickled or cooked; add to stir-fries or soups. Daikon is a "winter radish," requiring a longer time to develop than spring radishes, and cool temperatures to mature the edible root. To grow successfully, sow in mid- to late summer or early fall.
This packet plants three 5 foot rows.
When to sow outside: RECOMMENDED. 8 to 10 weeks before fi rst fall frost, and 2 to 3 successive sowings every 10 days. In mild winter climates, successive sowings can be continued until temperatures are too cold for germination.
When to start inside: Not recommended.
Harvesting: Harvest in late fall or early winter before ground freezes. Harvest at any size, tiny for hors d'oeuvres or large for cooking.
Contents: Raphanus sativus

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
