What is daikon radish?

Daikon radish is a root vegetable that is long and tubular. Daikons are most commonly found in the white variety, that almost looks like a white carrot. But they come in other colors as well.

Daikons are often used in Asian cuisines. They are crunchy, with a sweet flavor, and a mild, peppery bite. Compared to red radishes, they are much larger and milder in flavor with a less spicy taste.
