Radish daikon at 1 week ready for harvest. This is my preferred stage of harvest you can wait longer but these 1st 2 leaves will start to go yellow as the other larger leaves appear. Click to hide.

The seeds are quite large hence the larger radish, but to note these are for sprouting and I have not grown them to a full stage plant, however I have grown them to medium stage and just picked the larger leaves this is an option if you have the room. Click to hide.

Here they are grown in Vermiculite and Coco fibre, I now just use the Vermiculite, inside 1 of our punnets 6 of which fit in this green tray, this is a very modular system as you can see 3 punnets are almost ready for harvest while the other 3 are still germinating. Click to hide.

Here shown growing as a loose sprout i.e. in a sprouting colander, where most of the husks have already been removed through the washing and rinsing process. Click to hide.

Here we have a mix of Radish Daikon, Radish Red Arrow and Fenugreek, firstly grown into small colanders and then finally added to 1 of our larger colanders for greening, de-husking and storage in the fridge. Click to hide.

Here the daikon is grown in 1 of our round trays with a grill insert, using far fewer seeds so that the plant can grow into a broader leaf stage, where you just pick the leaves this is a good alternative to growing them densely and picking them after one week, however this has taken about 4 weeks to get to this stage.

Radish Daikon Untreated

Radish Daikon white 1kg (NZ) 90+% Germ. seeds for sprouting.

Clear

Product Info.

Radish – Daikon sprouts, (1kg) 90+% Germ. seeds for sprouting. Like Mustard, Cress and Broccoli is a member of the Cruciferous/Brassica family which are renowned for their high content of antioxidants.

Germination rates when growing as a micro-green/vertical sprout – with regard to the Daikon Radish, to get really good germination rates it’s best to soak for at least 12 hours in warm water with a small amount of nutrient solution, some soak the seeds for 24 hours in warm water, using a little heat mat. The Daikon seems to have a slightly harder shell than the Red Arrow, so benefit from the extra time and the warm water.

Radish is one of the easiest & quickest & most versatile sprout, it can be grown as a vertical sprout ie a Micro-Green in shallow trays (top picture), or as a loose sprout.

When growing them as loose sprouts my preferred method is to mix them e.g. 40 ml of Radish Daikon, 40 ml of Radish Red Arrow, 40 ml of Fenugreek Or Alfalfa 40 ml, Fenugreek 40 ml & 40 ml of Radish. This gives you two full small colanders or 1 large, of yummy tangy sprouts.

Radish sprouts are very low in Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Vitamin A, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Iron and Copper, and a very good source of Vitamin C, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Manganese.

Radish can also be grown to a full plant, & just pick the leaves.

Research Abstract:- RADISH SPROUTS VERSUS BROCCOLI SPROUTS: A COMPARISON OF ANTI-CANCER POTENTIAL

In July 2006, Channel 9 gave a news coverage entitled _ Natural Wonder Weapons in Fight against Cancer_ with research done in Queensland by a Department of Primary Industries physiologist, who found that the phytochemical in radish sprouts, literally, can flush out cancer-causing elements. It was found that radish sprouts were 4 – 5 times more potent than broccoli sprouts, which were previously found in research to have this same action. All of the brassica vegetables, like cabbage, cauliflower, watercress, Brussels sprouts, mustard, rocket, turnip, horseradish, kale and wasabi, contain plant chemicals that convert to isothiocyanates when we chew them. Research has shown that, as sprouts, they have more cancer blocking potential than the same plants as mature vegetables. This is because of the differences in their content of beneficial phytochemicals. When we eat radishes … as radish sprouts, research findings have found them to be 50 times more powerful than when eaten as a fully-grown radishes. This research, indicated, we need to eat one cup of fresh radish sprouts a week to literally flush out cancer-causing elements and neutralise any carcinogens eaten or inhaled from environmental toxins, including cigarette smoke.

“Radish sprouts and broccoli sprouts have been implicated in having a potential chemoprotective effect against certain types of cancer. Each contains a glucosinolate that can be broken down to an isothiocyanate capable of inducing chemoprotective factors known as phase 2 enzymes. In the case of broccoli, the glucosinolate, glucoraphanin, is converted to an isothiocyanate, sulforaphane, while in radish a similar glucosinolate, glucoraphenin, is broken down to form the isothiocyanate, sulforaphene. When sprouts are consumed fresh (uncooked), however, the principal degradation product of broccoli is not the isothiocyanate sulforaphane, but a nitrile, a compound with little anti-cancer potential. By contrast, radish sprouts produce largely the anti-cancer isothiocyanate, sulforaphene. The reason for this difference is likely to be due to the presence in broccoli (and absence in radish) of the enzyme cofactor, epithiospecifier protein (ESP). In vitro induction of the phase 2 enzyme, quinone reductase (QR), was significantly greater for radish sprouts than broccoli sprouts when extracts were self-hydrolysed. By contrast, boiled radish sprout extracts (deactivating ESP) to which myrosinase was subsequently added, induced similar QR activity to broccoli sprouts.”

The implication is that radish sprouts have potentially greater chemoprotective action against carcinogens than broccoli sprouts when hydrolysed under conditions similar to that during human consumption.”

Sprouting Kits

Basic sprouting kit consisting of 1 sprouting colanders with covers along with 250 mls of bio activated organic nutrients + Storage options(2 X cotton bags, mesh bag, plastic bag clip). Ideal for the beginner who does not do huge quantities e.g. if you just want to do Broccoli, when the colanders is almost full you can start eating and or store in the fridge using the storage options(2 X cotton bags, mesh bag, plastic bag clip) then restart your next batch. Click to hide.

Ideal for the beginner who does not do huge quantities e.g. if you just want to do Broccoli, when 1 of the colanders is almost full you can start eating and or store in the fridge and then start the other one so you have a consistent supply.

Sprout Kit Sm. x 2
Sprout Kit Lg. x 1 + Sm. x 2

Sprouting kit 2 small sprouting colanders with covers plus one large 4L colander with cover along with 250ml of bio activated organic nutrients + Storage options(2 X cotton bags, mesh bag, plastic bag clip). Ideal for those people that eat a lot of sprouts as you can wait until the 2 small ones are full or three quarters full and then add them to the large one which you store in the fridge, after a few more days of cleaning and rinsing, and then start the process again in the small ones while eating from the large one, again so you have a constant supply.

Sprout Kit Lg. x 1 + Sm. x 2
Sprout Kit Lg. x 1 + Sprout Bag

Sprouting kit 1 large colander with cover + Storage options(2 x cotton bags, 2 x mesh bags, plastic bag clip ) for the early stage of sprouting (instead of the small colanders) +250 ml of bio-activated nutrients for sprouting with seed selection. So the idea with this kit is you use 1 of the mesh bags to grow your sprouts for the 1st say 4 days, you then empty them into the large colander for the final stages of cleaning (removal of husk) and greening. When the sprouts are ready you stop soaking and draining them and leave them to dry for a couple of days and then store them in the other mesh bag inside the cotton bag inside a plastic bag. You can then start sprouting again in your other mesh bag or if you have another spare colander you can begin this process earlier. This saves you the cost of extra small colanders with covers but not quite as convenient in my opinion. Select the Product Name button to go to that Product Or Click to hide.

Sprout Kit Lg. x 1 + Sprout Bag
Sprout Kit Lg. Mung

Growing Super Mung bean Sprouts using 1 large 4 L colander +2 KG of pebbles to weigh the sprouts +1 KG of Mung bean and bio-activated super organic nutrients.
Growing the mung bean in the long white format. This can be done by putting it in a space that restricts its growth or similarly, as we have done here, placing a weight on top of the sprouts, along with the tea towel this serves the purpose of also keeping the light out i.e. so the leaf development is restricted.
We give you the option of purchasing this kit with or without the cover, if you are just doing mung beans then you do not need the cover, however if you want to use it to do normal sprouts then you can sprout the seeds in the mesh bag for say 3 – 4 days, and then empty them into the large colander and proceed with the sprouting process from there, in this case you will need the cover.
We also supply you with our sprouts/vegetable storage system this allows you to store your sprouts in the fridge for well over a week. Select the Product Name button to go to that Product Or Click to hide.

Vegetable storage kit

The kit consists of 2 cotton bags, one mesh bag, and a clip to seal plastic bags. Can be used to store leafy greens, sprouts, vegetables in general and can also be used as a shopping/carry bag also designed to fold into a small package.
This is the method I now use to store my sprouts and salad greens also other vegetables. Leafy greens & sprouts, it's best to store them 1st in a mesh bag, any damp material will not stick to the cotton bag (meaning you do not have to wash the cotton bag every time you change it). So the simple procedure is put the leafy greens inside the mesh bag, zip it up, place inside the cotton bag, then place inside a plastic bag that doesn't have any holes in it, gently squeeze the air out and secure with the clip.
