North Carolina Daikon

North Carolina DaikonNative to Asia, these are very large carrot-shaped radishes (up to 18" long and weighing one to two pounds). Also called Japanese or oriental radishes, domestic daikons have a white flesh that is juicy and a bit hotter than that of red radishes but milder than that of black ones. Daikon may be used cooked (added to soups or stir-frys) or uncooked (as an addition to salads or relishes).
