Rat Tailed Radish!

Our germination tests are looking good.
I was VERY happy that our Rat Tailed Radish seed germinated. This is a radish pod variety, meaning you wait until it grows a seed pod on top and eat that not the root!
Very yummy, and great in salads or stirfry (he German's pickle it!)

We bought 4 oz of the seed in 2004 from Johnnies, we have 2 oz left and it is at the end of it's life span. And now Jhonnies does not carry it and most places only have it in small quantities.

This is a great canadiate for seed saving this year as we don't let any other radish go to flower!

So maybe in 2009 our Rat Tailed Radish will be our own!
