Aka Karaine Hybrid

Raphanus sativus


Aka Karaine Hybrid
Seed #376
This unique, prize winning, Japanese hybrid, has bright pink skin and pink flesh with a white core. The roots are cylindrical in shape—about twice as long (6") as they are wide. Lower water content in its firm flesh intensifies its hot, spicy flavor. Popularly used for daikon oroshi because of its color and flavor. Stores well for more than 6 months when kept cool.
  • Cool season annual
  • Approx. 75-100 seeds in packet. (A seed will vary in weight and size within a given seed lot. The number of seeds stated is only an estimate.)
  • Maturity: Approx. 60 days
  • Planting season: Late summer/early fall

Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: Does not need to be peeled. The hottest flavor occurs about 1-2 minutes after grating and then begins to mellow. Use pickled or fresh, in salad, in soup, and in tsuyu (dipping sauce). Daikon oroshi (coarsely grated daikon using a Japanese grater) is delicious with soba noodles, tempura and Japanese-type hamburgers.
