SCIENTIFIC NAME: Raphanus sativus var. longipinnatus
CULTURE: Daikon radishes require friable, well drained soils with a pH range of 5.8-6.8. Work soil deeply, in raised beds if possible, for straight roots and ease of harvest. Sow 10 seeds/ft., thinning to 4-6" apart, rows 18" apart. Note planting seasons in variety descriptions to reduce bolting.
HARVEST AND STORAGE: Daikons are brittle; use gardening forks or undermine and lift roots carefully. Cut tops 2" above crowns, wash, and refrigerate. Daikons can be stored at 32°F (0°C) and 95% relative humidity for 6-10 weeks.
