Radish Mooli Mino Early Seeds
Cooking Tip: Eat raw grated in salads or sliced and sprinkled with salt as an appetiser. Or, try stir-fried with fresh ginger and sugar snap peas.
Planting & Harvesting
Sow & Grow
Outdoors, sow thinly, May-August, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 30cm (1') between rows. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Keep moist, as dry conditions may cause roots to toughen. Thin plants to 15cm (6") apart. Cloche protection in autumn can extend the harvest season. Harvest: August-November. Harvest alternate roots, allowing others to mature fully, up to 35cm (14") long.
Hint's & Tips
Oriental Veg: This mild Mooli will become slightly hotter in heavy soils and at maturity, most of the heat being in the skin, which can be peeled before use.
