Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: Use pickled or fresh and in soup, salad and tsuyu (dipping sauce). Daikon oroshi (coarsely grated daikon using a Japanese grater) is delicious with soba noodles, tempura and Japanese-type hamburgers. The hottest flavor occurs about 1-2 minutes after grating and then begins to mellow.
