Saitaro Winter Radish

(69 days) F-1 hybrid. Like a stark late January moon crossed by clouds, Winter Light daikon glimmered but faded, yanked by the supplier. Luckily our 2015 daikon trial revealed another top finisher. Similar to Winter Light in size, Saitaro’s thick uniform 9–12"-long root tapers to a blunt point. Its rise will be steady and slow bolting, vigorous tops shading the nice-looking white roots with light green tinted shoulders. With very smooth silky texture cooked and a nicely spiced crunch when raw, this one is sure to have you saying oishiidesune (“ohee-SHE-des-nay”). Resists yellow wilt.
