  • Radish seed heads

    Radish seed heads, what size is best for picking ? and how would you cook them ? . They sound like they should be nice and i have some going to seed. Thank you

    You can eat them at almost any size, as long as they are still bright green (once they begin yellowing they get tough). The best size is probably just as you can start to see bulges in the pod where the seeds are.

    I've never heard of cooking them. They're usually eaten raw in salads, or you can also pickle them.

        I think they can be used in stir fries, although I haven't tried them.

              For the purest flavour and best texture pick as young as possible. Letting them become full and bulbous impacts flavour and texture. I usually soak them in a bit of good quality vinegar for a couple of hours and then scatter them over trout/salmon.

                How long are they when you pick them. Sound nice with salmon. Thanks.

                  You want to judge it by fatness, not length, as length will vary based on number of seeds (can be 1-3 seeds in each pod).
                  5-7mm is probably the best thickness. Much bigger and they become less crisp and even begin to go tough, pick them smaller and it's just a waste, as you end up with far less weight of pods.
