Unbeatable, scintillating flavor. Once plants are established, they will produce huge yields of fresh horseradish that will spice up a wide range of dishes. And it’s a perennial, so you can plan on bigger and better crops every year. Harvest as early as spring once the ground thaws and the crown turns green or as late as fall, before the ground freezes. To continue to grow as a perennial, harvest and replant immediately. Harvested roots keep well for months. Cold-hardy. Sold in packages of 5 roots.

What are the planting instructions for your horse raddish. We received it but no planting instructions?
Robert M on Apr 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Basically, when you plant bare-root horseradish, make sure the flat end is up and the slanted end goes down in the planting hole. When you're finished planting, the horseradish will end up about 2 inches below the soil surface. We have all of our Growing Guides available online on our website for your convenience. Here is the one for the horseradish:
How do I eliminate horseradish plants I do not want?
Shirley S on Oct 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can also dig out the roots to just under the surface, and then pour a mixture of equal parts salt and white vinegar on the visible remains. You can also cover the area with plastic and deprive it of any moisture for a few months, and it will not come back.

Fun and easy
This stuff grew great. It's a tough plant and easy to care for...just keep it watered and it grows like a weed. In Autumn we had gobs of roots to harvest...and then this spring it just started growing again. We didn't have to do anything, Mother Nature took care of the initial watering. Keep in mind that once you plant it, it just keeps coming back. Was told that horseradish root from the grocery store can be planted...but don't know what you would get to grow, if anything.

Very nice roots. Left them in the ground for 2 years. Made some awesome horseradish dipping sauce for my meats. My guests said it was the best they've ever tasted

Very prolific horseradish!
I've been buying fruit trees from Stark Bros for more than 20 years - quite happily. So I tried horseradish and am pleased with last year's harvest and how quickly horseradish sprouted from the bits of root I didn't manage to harvest.

Robust plants
These roots were in great shape and have grown very robust plants that went through a -35 F Winter with no il effects, I had a couple of roots from another source that are healthy but the plants don't grow as large or as fast.
