Radish Red Arrow Daikon
The 'daikon' is a Japanese winter radish which literally translates to 'great root'. A smooth pink skinned root with a bright white core that unlike fiery radishes, is mildly spicy. Red Arrow was re-selected for the bright pink stem it produces when grown as micro-greens.
Daikons make fine fresh eating radishes when harvested young, often grated into salads. The mature roots are often dried or pickled and the green sautˇed. Red Arrow is one of the most popular micro-greens grown.
