Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in late summer/early fall in a warm, sunny location. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: Use in soup, salad, pickled or fresh. Daikon oroshi (coarsely grated daikon using a Japanese grater) is delicious in sauces used for soba noodles, tempura, and sashimi. The leaves are prepared cooked or pickled. Vietnamese cooks enjoy it caramelized with fish sauce and sugar in fish and pork dishes and raw in salads.
