Daikons or Japanese radishes, are the most popular vegetable in Japan. Pickled, grated, or raw, they are found in nearly every Japanese meal. Daikon literally “big root” is a type of edible radish known for its very long white root. The common variety is grown in the shape of a very large carrot. In Japan many kinds of pickles are made of daikon. Oden, a popular winter soup dish, also features daikon as a principle ingredient. Outside of Asia they are known as “Fodder Radish”. Its Latin name is Raphanus sativus
