Horseradish Crowns

Horseradish is adapted to the north and is not suited for southern planting except in high altitudes. One plant is quite large and will need a big area in the garden. Not much is needed for the average family, and a few plants will provide roots for an ample supply of grated or ground horseradish. To prepare horseradish, clean and grate the roots into white wine vinegar or distilled vinegar of 4 1/2 to 5 per cent acid content, bottle, and seal at once.

Horseradish makes its best growth in the cool autumn, steadily improving after September and not injured by early frost. Harvest late fall with a spade.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Select a sunny location and plant in early spring in deeply cultivated, moderately rich soil. It does best in deep, moist, rich loam, well fertilized, but will grow in any good soil except perhaps very light sands and very heavy clays. Shallow soil will not serve since this plant has rough, pronged roots. 1. Plant 1" deep just below ground level. 2. Pack sets firmly and fertilize with manure or garden fertilizer. 3. Supplying humus and moisture will assure you of the best quality and largest size. Plant in the spring, after the ground warms to about 50ยบ F.
