Mu or Korean radish is a variety of white radish with a firm crunchy texture.

Although mu () is also a generic term for radishes in Korean, the word is usually used in its narrow sense, referring to the Joseon radish (조선무, Joseonmu). Korean radishes are generally short, stout, and sturdy, and have a pale green shade halfway down from the top. They also have a strong flavour, dense flesh and soft leaves. The greens of Korean radishes are called mucheong (무청) and are used as a vegetable in various dishes.
