Its thick, smooth skin is creamy white and capped with pale green shoulders. Though commonly sold with the greens removed both the root and the greens of this radish are edible.

The Korean radish (Raphanus sativus), is an annual, cool season root vegetable and a member of the Brassicaceae or mustard family. Related to the daikon radish, the Korean radish is also known as Lo Bok, Mu and Moo. A hybrid variety known as tae baek was developed for a late summer to early winter growing season as the plants aren't normally productive in warm weather conditions.
The Korean radish provides dietary fiber, vitamin C, and carotene. Both the raw Korean radish and the kimchee are popularly used in Korean cuisine and are believed to be beneficial in supporting digestive health.
The Korean radish is most commonly used as an ingredient in kimchee. They are also popularly sliced thin, pickled and served as an appetizer or accompaniment to grilled meats.
