Spice up your summer salads with this peppery-tasting Daikon Radish ‘Misato Rose Flesh’. Distinctive and attractive, this variety is commonly known as ‘watermelon radish’ for its unique appearance, with creamy-white to pale green outer skin and bright purple-pink flesh inside. These flavoursome radishes have a crisp bite and the bicolour makes for decorative slices, ideal in salads and stir fries or as a pretty garnish in starters and side dishes. Height: 45cm (18”). Spread: 30cm (12”).
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible.
Companion planting: Try growing radishes with mint to deter flea beetles, which chew irregular holes in the leaves.
Direct sow oriental radish seeds from June to July outdoors. Grow in a well prepared fertile, moist, free draining seedbed in full sun or semi shade. Sow radish seeds thinly at a depth of 1cm (½”) in drills 15cm (6″) apart. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 2.5cm (1″) apart. Where space is limited, growing mooli radish in patio containers will also produce a worthwhile crop.
When growing Daikon radishes, prevent them running to seed by keeping plants cool and well watered, particularly during hot, dry periods. Excessive watering should also be avoided as this will encourage radish leaf growth instead of root development. Harvest radishes around 8 weeks after sowing when roots reach a 10cm (4″) in length. Protect winter crops with cloches.
