Daikon, also known as 'lobak' or 'icicle radish', is a white winter radish with a large and long root and mild flavour. Daikon radish is ready for harvest in Ontario in mid summer.
Daikon radish can be eaten both raw and cooked. Enjoy it sliced, grated, or julienned into salads, or boiled, roasted, pickled, or pureed as a side or a basis for soups and stews. It can be added into sti frys or made into chips. It is also used in some Chinese cuisines to make cakes.
Daikon originated in continental East Asia but is now grown throughout the world. Daikon not only a culinary crop, it is also used to break up compact soil as a winter cover crop or green manure. In this context it's called 'oilseed radish', and can also be used as animal fodder. The heirloom variety, watermelon radish, is another variety of Chinese daikon radishes. Daikons can also be found with green gradients or with a purple tinted skin and flesh.
