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.

Horseradish is impossible to find locally. when you do come across it, it costs around 15 dollars for ONE root.

We like Horseradish, and it is getting harder and harder to find a good quality sauce at the market so we want to see if we can grow it and produce our own sauce from the roots.

I had horseradish that grew very well before I moved from that location. I'd like to grow it again but have not been able to find it at my local nurseries.

Because horseradish is delicious, but also difficult to find fresh in my area. I'm hoping it will thrive here.

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:
Does deer browse horseradish foliage?
Tatiana G on May 5, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I bought 3 or 4 horseradish plants 2 years ago. I now have 15 plants from those earlier plants. We have had no problems with deer.
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.

Grew well
About half of the roots grew and these are thriving in a shady spot where not much else grows.
