In this study, we explored the feasibility of making a novel inter-generic graft between pac choi (Brassica rapa L. var. chinensis) and daikon radish (Raphanus sativus L. var. longipinnatus) to create a plant with edible pac choi leaves aboveground and an edible daikon radish taproot belowground. ‘Mei Qing Choi’ pac choi (scion) was successfully grafted onto ‘Bora King’ daikon radish (rootstock). Grafting pac choi and daikon radish plants did not markedly impact pac choi growth while daikon radish taproot formation and growth were reduced more evidently although still producing a marketable root. This new pac choi–daikon radish vegetable crop could save growing space and minimize waste at consumption, as well as provide a unique model system to elucidate scion-rootstock synergy and aboveground versus belowground sink competition in horticultural crops.
