    Daikon Information...

    Grows in conditions similar to the common radish, except that daikons are bigger and need more space and a longer growing season. A deep, loose, moist, fertile soil is required. Plant in late winter or early spring for spring and summer use and in July for fall harvest.

    This is an extremely versatile vegetable that can be eaten raw in salads or cut into strips or chips for relish trays. It also can be stir-fried, grilled, baked, boiled or broiled. It can also be grated for use as a condiment, pickled, or simmered in a soup. They can also be preserved by salting, similar to making sauerkraut. The thin skin of a daikon is peeled like a carrot and cut for whatever style your recipe idea calls for. Not only is the root eaten, but the leaves also are rich in vitamin C, beta carotene, calcium, and iron, so they are worth using instead of discarding.

    Nutrition Information - Daikon is rich in vitamin C. It also contains active enzymes that aid digestion.
