Have you ever heard of rat-tailed radishes?

8 months ago

Have you ever grown or ever even heard of a rat-tailed radish? Well I was gifted a package of seed and every year I like to grow something new and different in the garden. People I was not prepared for this! These radishes get a long skinny seed pod like a rat tail that you eat instead of the root bulb. These photos show 3 plants. The tallest is 5 ft tall and 4 ft wide. They send out these long arms with purple flowers on the end and spiky looking things all the way up that are turning into rat tails! I sure hope they are delicious. I don't normally even like radishes that well... I may be trying to rehome about 100 rat-tailed radishes.
