Daikon grows big if thinned out properly. You may ask what we do with those thinned out daikon. Toss them? No way! The thinned Japanese radishes are delicious!
Vegetables deliver necessary nutrients from the leaves to the roots through photosynthesis. In order to convert light energy into nutrient energy, vegetables have beautiful green leaves. The roots of the thinned daikon are small, but the leaves are packed with nutrients; it is said the leaves have more health benefits than the daikon roots.
In Japan, mabiki daikon is often used for miso soup and pickles as both leaves and roots are edible. We highly recommend mabiki daikon! Limited quantity available. Order now while supplies last.
