Horseradish is a widely adopted, hardy perennial plant in the brassica family that has been cultivated literally for thousands of years. Plants have tall sword-shaped green leaves but are grown for the pungent flavor punch of the freshly grated roots. Homegrown horseradish provides a deliciously flavorful fresh bite and healthy, sinus clearing medicinal properties.
We have partnered with a long-time grower to offer healthy starter roots for spring planting of the variety “Big Top,” selected for its size, vigor, wide adaptability and foliage resistance to rust and bacterial spot (common problems in horseradish). These plants will yield top-quality roots to plant for years of tasty eating.
