Armoracia rusticana

Horseradish

Horseradish is a somewhat coarse vegetable that is grown for its pungent, fleshy roots which are harvested and grated to make sauces or relishes. Plant features large, variably sized (up to 2' long), dock-like, toothed, shiny, dark green leaves and insignificant, whitish flowers which appear in summer in terminal panicles. An extremely vigorous plant that crowds out most weeds and is itself weed-like, with a very spreading growth habit.
