Excellent variety for making your own ground horseradish.
This is the standard variety for gourmet horseradish sauce. Vigorous plants produce large white roots for use in late fall or winter—just chop and add vinegar. Plant as soon as the soil can be worked with the thick end up, about 18" apart. Harvest after 1 year in the garden.
Plant horseradish in early spring in moist, deep, rich soil in full sun or partial shade. Set plants 18" apart in rows 30" apart and cover with 3" of soil.
How to Grow
Provide plants with extra water during especially dry periods. When the largest leaves reach 10" long, dig up main root and remove side roots on top (but NOT on the bottom). Remove nearly all leaves on the crown, then replant crown. Repeat after 6 weeks.
Dig up the roots after fall frost kills their foliage. Store in refrigerator in an airtight plastic bag. Use grated roots as a condiment.
