The rattail sold by SSE does take awhile to produce. I also found the pod quality to be highly variable, and some became fibrous rather quickly. Madras had shorter, more succulent pods, and was exceptionally slow to develop fiber.

Other radishes I've grown that had better than average pods were White Icicle, and Russian White.

Radishes grown for pods can benefit from winter sowing, since those plants will bolt more quickly... bad if growing for roots, but good for getting earlier pods.
