HORSERADISH

Horseradish plantBy Sanja565658 CC BY-SA 3.0, GFDL (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Armoracia rusticaria
Description

Famous for its spicy roots, it has a hot biting taste with a hint of sweetness. The plant is a hardy perennial herb that will grow rampantly under most condition except full shade and in wet ground. It is best controlled by growing in a container. Roots will keep in the ground throughout winter and can be harvested as required. They are an excellent source of sulfur. Young leaves can also be eaten raw or cooked, they have a strong flavour so are best used in moderation.

Horseradish (Cutting)

     Easy to grow. Needs only ordinary soil, thrives on neglect but a good watering when very dry is a help. Lift large roots, scrub clean of dirt and skin, grate, add salt and white vinegar for a hot spicey horseradish. Blend radish root with salt and cream for a rich horse radish cream. A blend of chili, garlic, ginger and horseradish, makes a great marinade for fish, pork and roast beef. A real sinus cleanser when suffering from colds and flu. Propagate via root cuttings, plant a few inches below the surface, water in well.

I planted this in an area with hydrophobic soil in strong sun and no matter how much I watered nothing seemed to help. It struggled on for a year or so but then gave up the ghost.
