Indigenous to Southern Asia but adaptable to all climates from tropics to cool regions. Grown for its prolific long, green, edible seed pods; rather than its root. The pods have a crisp texture with a juicy and delicate radish flavour.

Rat-Tail Radishes are a tasty treat straight off the plant, but they also add a flavourful bite to a salad. They can be cooked and used as an alternative for pea pods in stir fry and other dishes. Grow your own produce to create truly authentic dishes inspired by regional cuisines of the world’s kitchens.
