Resembling a large white carrot, Chinese white radish has a much stronger flavor than small, round red radishes. While Daikon is a popular salad ingredient in Japan, in China it is more commonly used in cooking, both in stir-frying and slow cooked dishes. It is also pickled. Turnip cake is a popular cake during Chinese New Year season.

Nutritionally speaking, Chinese white radish is a good source of Vitamin C and is very low in calories.
