The unmistakably pungent flavor of wasabi can clear the sinuses and invigorate the palate. The energizing flavor found in plants like true wasabi and horseradish root can also be found in the Wasabi Radish of Japan. This is a medium-size oblong Daikon type radish packs a wallop of tingling wasabi heat. Add the peppery flavour to stir-fries and sandwiches or sliced paper-thin to enhance a salad or your favorite Asian recipe. Spring planting benefit is that you can let a couple of plants go to seed as their pods are delicious and pack immense heat. Sow early in spring but late in summer August-September when the soil is 18-22 C produces a great crop. Plenty of water and space helps prevent these delightful hot radishes from going woody.
