Ancient and Asian, I’m larger and more revered than my western counterparts, and my long, white (sometimes green-shouldered), shape distinguishes me from American and European varieties. My earliest existence is documented in archeological remains of northern China; it’s believed that I traveled westward following the path of human migrations. I was introduced to Japan only one thousand years ago and am now the country’s most widely grown vegetable. In England, in the Middle Ages, I was prescribed as a remedy for “woman’s chatter” and depression. Early on, sailors ate me to prevent scurvy and as a remedy for colds. In addition to lots of vitamin C, I have only 10 calories per half cup. Raw, I’m fresh and snappy, with a juicy crispness; I can be sweet and mild to fairly hot and pungent. Peel me like a carrot, cook me like a turnip, grate me or foam me, pickle me, or carve me into decorative shapes. I’m loved in tempura dipping sauces, with sushi, or call me Mooli and cook me in Indian food. You may use my black Spanish relative because he’s the same size and shape, but only I can be gift-wrapped as a token of esteem in Japan.
