22 to 30 Days to maturity. Raphanus sativus. Shirashime Hatsuka Daikon Radish Heirloom Seeds. Cool Season Annual. A uniquely small daikon radish, Shirashime Hatsuka is hardy, quick to harvest, and mildly flavored. This variety can be harvested 20 days after planting and can grow up to 4 inches long and 1/2 inch in diameter. They look a little bit like small white carrots! If your climate is mild, they can be grown year-round. Otherwise, sow in spring or early fall. Shirashime Hatsuka radishes are mild and excellent for eating raw. ~ 3,800 seeds / oz.
Choose a location that gets at least partial sun, some shade is good if planting in the spring. Prepare your soil by loosening and amending it as needed. Sow seeds 1/2" in rows 12 inches apart; successive plantings every 5 to 10 days are recommended. Thin seedlings 3 inches apart and keep consistently moist until ready to harvest.
Harvesting Daikon Radishes
Shirashime Hatsuka radishes are small enough that they should be easy to harvest. Grip the plants at the base and pull upwards to get the root. If you struggle with the plants breaking, use a shovel or fork to dig them up.
Store these radishes in the fridge after cutting off the tops and they should stay fresh for up to 4 weeks! The vegetable drawer is the perfect environment for them.
This variety is mild and sweet enough to eat fresh! Try adding radish slices to salads or even sandwiches. They would also be tasty pickled or roasted. If your radishes turn out a little pungent and bitter, don’t worry–they can still be used in soups or stews!
Tips From Our Gardeners
"It can be hard to grow radishes in a warm climate, I would know having grown up in Phoenix, Arizona! If it seems too hot outside to grow tasty radishes, try growing this variety in a container indoors. They’re small enough that they won’t need a huge pot!"
- Katie Robinson, True Leaf Market Writer and Horticulture Student
These radishes mature quickly enough that most pests and diseases will not be an issue, but watch out for fungal diseases such as root rot. Additionally, cabbage loopers and aphids may be able to inflict significant leaf damage if left unchecked. Watch for eggs and signs of insect damage to avoid this.
