A rarely seen variety of radish, grown for it’s quick growing and large edible pods up to 60mm long.
The pods have an attractive purplish tint and are best harvested when still tender and free of fibres.
Younger pods can be eaten raw, though here on our farm we enjoy them roasted.
Care must be taken if grown for seed as these will cross with the common ‘weed’ wild radish. The roots are not harvested.
