Delicious pods

Radish pods
Radish pods

a great veg for the lazy!

During the summer we visited the nearby St Mary's allotment and I spotted pods like these in the 'show' they were holding alongside their barbeque. I tracked them to an Asian family who told me that they are the fruit of radish plants allowed to flower.
So when mine ran to seed a few months ago I thought I'd leave them in the ground and see what I got. These plentiful pods are indeed very good to eat, briefly stirfried or steamed, and they couldn't be easier to grow.
