Mooli - The One Month Wonder

Having read Geekgardener's detailed post  on how easy it is to grow Mooli (Daikon Radish), I thought I'd experiment. Just 38 days later, the result was three crunchy Moolis. Moolis are ready for harvest in just 30 to 40 days of sowing. A few of the seedlings didn't make it to being full-grown Moolis, but I've been duly compensated with plenty of Mooli leaves. Potatoes and Mooli leaves are a good combination. The tops can also be used to add extra bite to a soup, salad or raita.
From Garden to Table in 38 Days
The Moolis were grated (not peeled) and added to curd for Mooli Raita. You don't want to be peeling and wasting any part of a homegrown Mooli!
Radish Tops
This vegetable is a great way to introduce oneself to vegetable gardening. Now that I know how easy and quick it is to grow, I am planning my second batch.


  1. Great stuff Anita! I'll be growing them again next year too. Isn't it nice to have a vegetable that grows so quickly?

  2. Very healthy-looking radishes there! But I've always thought of mooli needing more space. I should try this out.

    I didn't know it was so easy to grow radish. Will grow them.

  4. Anita,

    I have seen daikon radishes in the grocery store, but have never tried them. Yours look beautiful.
