Rattail

Raphanus sativus var. longipinnatus

The name rat-tail says everything about its looks. It is grown for the spicy, tasty, 6-15 cm long, fibre-free, pointed seed-pods, green with a tinge of violet sometimes. They should be harvested before the seeds develop and eaten raw or poached/steamed for a minute or so. It is a common delicacy eastwards. It comes from Java and is sometimes classified as R. caudatus. The plants are big, 1-1.5 m, and need space - sow thinly! They easily reach the blooming stage and yield great amounts of pods gradually. Pick them frequently! Delicious! A portion contains about 300 seeds. MOFGA-certified seed. See under Info etc. - Ecologically grown seeds.
