Perennial horseradish (Armoracia rusticana)


The name of this edible perennial comes from the old French, rais fors meaning “strong root” in reference to the pungent but fine taste of its vigorous taproot. It was formerly called “poor man’s pepper”. Grated horseradish root is used as a condiment, as a substitute for mustard.

Envelope: 4 to 5 root splints (depending on size) to keep in the fridge moist until planting.

Keep the cuttings in the fridge until planting, and make sure they stay moist. Plant the roots by laying them down, either as seeds in April, or directly in the garden at the end of May. It is better to wait until the second year of cultivation to start harvesting, then between September and April. Pull out the roots with a strong spade; there will always be a fragment left in the soil to start again in the spring.
