Description

Dragon’s tail radish (Raphanus sativus var. caudatus ‘Dragon’s Tail’ or ‘Dragon Tail’) is very different from a “normal” radish—in appearance, anyway. Instead a plump, crispy, edible root, it produces 2- to 4-foot tall stems with an abundance of light pink to purple flowers that mature into long, knobbly, tapered seedpods. For best eating, harvest the pods when they are still young, crisp, and thinner than a pencil. Steam them like green beans, use them in a stir-fry, chop them into a salad, or pickle them. The young leaves and the flowers are also edible; bees and butterflies love them too! The stems can get long and sprawly, so consider giving the plants a tomato cage or some other kind of support, particularly if you want to leave some of the pods to mature on the plants so you can collect seed. Full sun to light shade. Annual.

Harvested starting in early July 2021. At least 15 seeds.
