They do sound great!  I am giving the Chinese red meat radish another try.  I think Citizen Kate said she thought they were more of a fall type.

Wow! Haven't seen this thread in a while. I grow daikon in the spring so that they will bolt as the weather warms and give me some yummy pods. Then I let the remainder go to seed for collecting mid summer. The flowers are beautiful and attractive to pollinators in late spring. Then I plant seeds again right about now for fall and early winter root and greens harvesting.
Yes, this IS a great plant!

When you say indoors, are you talking about a south facing enclosed porch? I'm not sure about the hours of sun we get in the winter. Audrey grows tomatoes in the green house during the winter but there are a couple of months without production.

Yup, south facing enclosed porch. I also turn the butterfly house into a greenhouse in the winter. It has heat and lights. I may not have a green thumb, but I am determined! Twisted Evil
