Daikon Radish
Common Packs:

5-, 10-, 20-, 30-, and 40-lb. packs.

Receiving Inspecting:

Daikon should be firm and smooth with a somewhat shiny exterior appearance. Avoid flabby or limp product.

Storage Handling:

Short-term storage recommendation (7 days or less)

  • 32-36° F/0-2° C
  • 90-98% relative humidity
7 to 10 days.

Daikon radishes may lose moisture if stored in an area with low humidity. Store properly.

Yellowing of tops can occur if daikon are exposed to ethylene gas. Keep away from ethylene-producing fruits and ripening rooms.

Pithy or spongy texture is a sign of age.

Usage Ideas:

  • Toss thinly sliced daikon, cucumbers, and shiso vinaigrette; serve with skewered, grilled meats.
  • Combine watercress, sliced daikon, and chopped mango; dress with rice wine vinaigrette.
