Daikon Seeds

Hi,

I've grown some daikon radish this year, and have let a few of the plants flower and seed.

Does anyone know if there are any special requirements for keeping diakon seeds?

The seeds come in a pod (a bit like a green bean). I opened the pods, and took out the seeds (about 3 or 4 per pod). The seeds look a bit like white fish eggs.

Thanks.

White color isn't a good indication of mature seed, it sounds like you may have picked your pods too soon. Mature ripe daikon seeds should be tan to brown when left to ripen on the plant...you could try letting yours dry on a plate for a few days and see if they take on some color but it may have taken more garden time for harvesting ripe viable seeds.
