RD694A - Miyashige White Neck
This is a standard mainstay of fall and winter harvest daikon radishes from Japan. The enormous roots can grow to 30-38cm (12-15") long and 6-8cm (2.5-3.25") in diameter. They keep very well as the soil cools down into early winter, and then they store well after harvest. The flesh is mild and crunchy, and very nice in pickles and kimchi. There is some variability to the ends between pointy and stubbed. Miyashige White Neck daikon radish seeds are for July and August sowing

How To Grow
Time your radish plantings a week apart for a longer harvest period. The secret to growing a great radish is to plant when the weather is cool, to not plant too close together and to harvest promptly before the roots get woody and bitter. Every part of the radish is edible. If you leave some of your radishes to go to seed you’ll find the pods before seed set are tender and juicy with a wonderfully sharp flavour that is excellent in stir-fries and soups. If you harvest the seeds before they dry they have a taste and texture reminiscent of caviar. Imagine the fresh seeds lightly sautéed with garlic and thyme on a bed of radish leaves. A gourmet delight! Follow along with this handy How to Grow Radishes from seed Guide and crunchy salad delights.
