Daikon Radish - Iwai Daikon

This mammoth, round, white root has a mild, sweet flavor. Harvest when roots reach 10" diameter. Grown in Japan as the "Largest Radish in the World," it sometimes reaches 100 pounds. Used for pickling and cooking, this giant originated in the very southern tip of Japan. Although it does not store well, the inner core remains crisp and juicy, even if the outer part becomes pithy.
