I planted some Daikon radishes at the wrong time, and got a bumper crop of radish seed pods and ZERO edible roots. The roots were tiny and hairlike for such a huge plant.
The pods were delicately spicy and delicious. Try eating some of your young seed pods!
Mine were Daikon Radish 'Minowase' OP from Hazards. Raphanus sativus
"Japanese Winter type, Pure white, 16" x 3" smooth, uniform, crispy, juicy flesh, low pungency, sow summer or fall, 52 days "
I think I planted mine in the spring, which was the worst time.
I left some pods on the ground and a few came back, here and there, for two years.
The subsequent volunteers apparently "knew" when they should germinate and grow. They developed big white roots, but they were too hot for me. They sprouted and drilled into pretty hard clayey soil, but their shoulders always stood above ground.
