Horseradish (Armoracia rusticana). 9 May 2008 Horseradish (Armoracia rusticana)

Horseradish (Armoracia rusticana, syn. Cochlearia armoracia) is a perennial but I treat it as an annual, and propagate the following year's plant from a piece of the current root. It is a member of the Brassicaceae family, which includes mustard, wasabi, and cabbages. I put it in a convenient place for digging in the late Fall, since the roots are a real hassle to remove from the ground, and the plant gets about two feet in diameter and about four feet tall. When mature in the Fall, horseradish condiment is made from the roots.
