A radish unlike any radish you have seen or eaten! Dragon's Tail Radish is an Asian heirloom aerial radish grown not for its roots, but the long, slender, curving purple seedpods that grow profusely above ground in beautiful plants.
Looking like lacy clouds in the garden, 3-4' leafy plants first produce pink and white flowers, followed by a glorious profusion of 3-6" purple and green pods. Delicious raw or cooked, the longer purple pods and shorter green pods are crisp and tender, with a more nuanced spicy accent than a typical radish, and with none of the harshness. Nutritious pods add bite and tang to stir-fry dishes and Asian cuisine. Scrumptious when pickled.
