Anyone planted these Daikon radishes in your plots? Planted purple top turnips last year and the deer got on them good, but only with 2 weeks left in the season. Just wondering if the radish would be a earlier browse brassica compared to the late frost turnips.

Was wondering this myself. I planted Biologic Maximum last year for the deer to never touch. I'm thinking I will try radishes this year

Bought 50 lbs of them and mixed half the bag with 54# of Maximum (which our deer love anyway). Sowed them Saturday and got rain that night. Will see how they do.

Does the Co op carry these? Only place I've ever seen them is on internet.

I just ordered 25lbs of daikon radishes and a few pounds of sugar beets from Hancock today. Should be delivered to my door before the weekend.
