Sakurajima Radish

Post  littlesapphire on Fri 26 Aug - 22:07

Would you ever grow.... one of these?

Giant Radishes



Yes, my friends. Those giant white things laying on the ground are....radishes! Giant Sakurajima Daikon Radishes, to be exact. They can grow to be 100 pounds!

I'm so intrigued... And yet, I don't think my SFG is deep enough or big enough. I looked them up, and they take 80 from seed to harvest. Oh, but they look so interesting! Maybe I'll put them out in the yard somewhere...

Wowzers, littlesapphire! I think you could feed several whole neighborhoods with just one of those radishes!

just remember those if we have a radish contest. You could always build a special box.

I don't know. It is probably dry, hot and stringy. Nah, I'll stick to my marble-sized radishes, thanks!

Actually, they're rather mild and not at all stringy. They're wonderful in soups and stews, as well as raw and pickled. Very Happy

Gee, when you pull 1 to eat, you'll have to put a whole bucket of compost in the square! Jo

Seeds.

50 Seeds $3.50

Lets see 50 seeds X 100 lbs per plant would be 5,000 lbs of radish!

God Bless Ward and Mary, where the hurricane is bring lots of rain.

Lol, you guys are so funny! I will have to slyly suggest a radish growing contest next year and plant them. That would be very fun Twisted Evil

I may just go for it then! I've heard that they're pretty good, much like a regular daikon radish (which is sweet rather than spicy like western radishes are). Even if I just grow one, that would more than pay for the packet of seeds.

Now, see, I though daikon was the *hot* spicy component of kimchi?
