Diakon is a type of radish, also called Chinese radish, Satsuma radish and, Japanese radish. Diakon does not look like other radishes, it looks like a long white root, resembling a pale carrot. Daikon can grow very large, up to 20 inches long and 4 inch diameter. The flavor is mild and less peppery than other radishes, it can be eaten raw or cooked. Tarragon is a wonderful addition to this slaw.
