50 Rat Tail radish Seeds , Aerial radish, Podded radishes, Spicy beans, Raphanus sativus var. caudatus Seeds
Rat-Tail radishes are small, slender, and elongated pods, averaging 15 to 30 centimeters in length, and have a cylindrical, spindly shape, tapering slightly at both ends. The light green pods are smooth, pencil-thin, firm, and taut, sometimes displaying a knobbed appearance. There are also some varieties with dark purple pods or a green and purple mottled surface. When consumed fresh, the pods are crisp and crunchy with a succulent, snap-like quality reminiscent of fresh chile peppers. It is recommended to consume younger pods as they will bear a more tender texture. Older pods develop a fibrous, chewy nature. Rat-Tail radishes contain a milder, peppery flavor compared to underground radish roots and have a delicate, vegetal pungency mixed with a subtle spiciness. In addition to the pods, some Rat-Tail radish varieties have edible pink or white flowers, and the young leaves can be consumed, emitting an herbaceous, green flavor.
