Variegated Horseradish(Armoracia rusticana Variegata)Herb in 1 Litre Pot 

Variegated Horseradish(Armoracia rusticana Variegata) is a Hardy perennial plant of the Brassicaceae family, which also includes mustard, wasabi, broccoli, and cabbages. Native to southeastern Europe and western Asia, horseradish can grow up to 2-3 feet tall, and is mainly cultivated for its large white, tapered root.

Horseradish will grow in any soil and position, but prefers rich moist soil and some sun. Producing long tapering green and white leaves and racemes of small white flowers in late spring or early summer, Horseradish is not generally  grown for its merit as a garden plant, but ithis variagated version would add interest and is definitely worth its place in the vegetable garden.

After the first frost in the autumn kills the leaves, the root can be  dug and divided. The main root is harvested and one or more large offshoots of the main root are replanted to produce next year's crop. Horseradish left undisturbed in the garden spreads via underground shoots and can become invasive.

Herb Usage

The intact horseradish root has hardly any aroma, but when cut or grated it produces a pungent, hot-mustard condiment, or can be used to flavour pickles and sauces, most famous of course as an accompaniment to Roast Beef. You could try adding it to a coleslaw to add heat and pep up the flavour.
