Part of the James Wong Homegrown Revolution Range.Quick and unbelievably easy to grow. Crisp, peppery roots can store for winter use. Treat them mean and keep them keen!The dim sum favourite that’s as foolproof as a garden radish to grow. Tastes like: Turnip & radish.The mooli, the exotic oriental sister of the normal radish, is not only easy to grow but is infinitely more fun in the kitchen. Baked, boiled, fried, shredded & transformed into some pretty fancy dim sum. They come into crop at the chilly end of autumn when little else exciting is rearing its head & unlike their ubiquitous European siblings, are rather tricky to find outside of Asian grocers. They even come in a bewildering array of colours, from pure white to acid green and even a version with a shocking pink heart. Make space for half a dozen of these and open up a whole range of new culinary experiences way beyond the scope of the sad supermarket types. Sow: July-September. Harvest: August-November.
