My son-in-law read in the Georgia Outdoor News magazine that the Daikon Radish was good for planting in deer plots. He planted this small plot on the edge of one of his pecan orchards. We often saw deer in the orchard at night but as far as we could tell the deer never touched the radishes. I pulled a few of the stalks and there were radishes over a foot long on the end.
I didn't like the taste of the radishes so I guess the deer didn't either. I've sure enjoyed the flowers though. The colors ranged from plain white with yellow centers to these with a dab of purple on them.
