Cultivating daikon is a great way to enjoy something a little different in your vegetable garden.
This monstrous radish produces an abundance of edible greens, as well as a bountiful crop of huge sweet radishes that store very well.
Deer rapidly become addicted to the foliage and the produce, so as well as being a plentiful human source of food, these radishes bring in the game.
Planting daikon radishes is not difficult and once you learn how to grow daikon radish plants, you will be able to enjoy them year round in some places or replant them each year in other regions.
A daikon is a Chinese radish (Raphanus sativus longipinnatus), also known as lobok and oriental radish. Daikon has large roots, and some of the biggest varieties can weigh up to 50 pounds. The most common types weigh from 1 to 2 pounds at maturity and can have up to a 2-foot leaf spread.
Most people cook daikon radishes, but they can also be used in salads. Growing daikon radishes is a nutritious and enjoyable pursuit. These tasty radishes are low in calories and full of essential vitamins and nutrients. Daikon radishes are even grown year round in most parts of California and similar regions.

In spring, you can plant these radishes as soon as you can work the soil. Continual planting every 10 to 14 days will ensure successive crops.
As with other radishes, growing daikon radishes are good to plant in places where you will put warm season crops.
If you want mature radishes in the spring, you can also plant them in the winter with the use of a cold frame or some other means of protection, unless you live in a temperate climate.
Place the seeds ¾ inch deep and 6 inches apart. Leave 3 feet between rows to allow for mature spread. The plants will mature within 60 to 70 days.
