Never heard of it before, however if you go into the L/H messageboard & put Daikon, then where it says date posted use drop box for anytime. Recipes there.

It is also greatly used in Japanese dishes, especially salads.

I grow them in my garden and have had them up to near on 60cms long because I left them too long... Ideally picked when about the size of a telegraph cucumber and great is salads as well as stir fries (just make matchsticks) or simply sliced and salted and eaten as a snack... two varieties I have, one the white and the other green... I prefer the white as it has the texture of a standard radish but a milder flavour, where the green is harder and a more "acute" flavour..
Just plant and forget about them, but not too long :}}
