60 days. Young shredded daikon radishes are often used in sushi, but their light, crunchy, slightly spicy flavor is a unique addition to many other dishes. Mature daikon is pickled or cooked; add to stir?fries or soups. Daikon is a "winter radish," requiring a longer time to develop than spring radishes, shortening day length to trigger root growth, and cool temperatures to mature the edible root. To grow successfully, sow in mid- to late summer or early fall.

This packet sows three 5-foot rows.
