Radish Daikon Miyashige - 50 Heirloom Seeds

Traditional Japanese daikon roots can grow up to 35-40cm long.  Young daikon radishes are often used shredded in sushi, but their light, slightly spicy flavour is a unique addition to many other dishes. Mature daikon is pickled or cooked; add to stir-fries or soups for crunch. 

Daikon is a winter radish, requiring shortening day length and cool temperatures to form. Deep roots are also used as a cover crop to break up heavy soils. Stores well. 

Growing Notes

Radishes can be grown all season but they’re easiest during early autumn and spring, avoid extreme hot weather days though. Sow direct 12 mm deep and then thin seedlings to 2.5 - 5 cm apart. Keep the row short and sow small crops every 2 to 3 weeks for continual harvest over months. Keep soil moist to avoid toughness. 

Radish is usually eaten raw, harvest while young and tender. Radish can be inter-planted with other crops such as carrots or beetroot for a fast harvest. 

Harvest promptly when radishes are the size of large marbles. Leaves and developing seedpods are also tasty. 

Plant radishes near beans, beets, celeriac, chervil, cucumber, lettuce, mint, parsnip, peas, spinach, squash, and tomatoes. Avoid planting near agastache or potatoes. It is said that planting 3 or 4 icicle radishes around the mound where you plant squash, and allowing them to grow and bloom, will prevent most pests of squash and cucumber.

Great variety

I was excited to see the great range of hard to source seeds.

Daikon Radish

I directed sewed the seeds within a mix of Celtuce, Red Mustard, Red Kale, and Broccoli seeds in a number of different sections of my permaculture garden. The Radish seeds sprouted in a few of the locations and have been growing well wherever they did sprout. The white tap root has appeared above the surface in a few locations and they all appear to be about the same thickness as a store bought carrot. They aren't due to be ready to harvest for another week or two, but I anticipate some tasty produce from these plants.

Good Seeds

I bought 2 kinds of radish seeds to grow which is radish (Winter Prince F1 seeds) and Radish (Daikon Miyashige seeds). I am very disappointed with the germination rate on the first one. It is about 30% germinated. But the one germinated grows well on the soil. Hope the germination rate. The later one is really good. Almost 90% germinated and is growing well at the moment. According to the instruction, the seeds put too closed together and now not enough place to grow, too dense. That is the only problem I have . Hope my comments can help.
I also bought watercress (true water seeds) but the germination rate is not good too. It is about 30% germinated. Hope there will be some improvement.
