Radish leaves.

They are hairy but I learned that in a stir-fry, the hairiness completely disappears. I bought seed for a radish that was sold as "hairless" but that seed company went out of business about 20 years ago. (It was like I learned of its existence, ordered some seed and the company was gone!) That's how I came to try radish in stir-fry and was willing to experiment with leaves from the more conventional varieties.

However, I'm seeing them advertised as a salad green and have found a source and description for Saisai Purple Radish. It is a daikon. Have you eaten daikon? The first time I had it was in a little restaurant at Pike's Place in Seattle. Vietnamese sandwich. Whew - spicy! But, I liked it and have bought those sandwiches now and then at Asian markets. Yep. The roots look too big for me to make good use of them and I have that root-unfriendly, rocky soil but this veggie looks multipurpose.

I am an avid Gardener. Since my childhood, I like gardening. I cultivated Bush Sunflowers, in my garden . But I faced some problems. It looked weedy around the plants, and the plants seem to be almost dead in the last summer. I thought it happened because of insufficient water supply. That is why I watered the plants but it did't work .
