Rat's Tail Radish (Raphanus sativus var. caudatus)
Also called "Snake radish", this radish is a very old variety originating from Indonesia. It does not develop a root, but is eaten by... the tail! It is actually the aerial pods that are edible and look like rat tails. Tender and tasty (pods, not rat tails!), slightly spicy, they can be eaten raw, cooked or marinated.
Latin name: Raphanus sativus var. caudatus
Common names: Snake radish
MAINTENANCE AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS
Radish is usually a cold climate crop and is best planted in the spring. On the other hand, the Rattail radish likes to be planted early, but loves the heat. It will flower when the hot weather arrives in August!
