Horseradish will arrive as dormant root cuttings. Please plant as soon as possible. If you are unable to plant upon arrival, remove any bands/ties around the roots and wrap them in slightly damp shagnum moss or newspaper and refrigerate. SAUCE PREPARATION: Wash and peel roots. Either outdoors or in another, well-ventilated space, grate roots into bowl. Mix in white vinegar and salt (optional) to taste. Store sauce in tightly-closed container in refrigerator. TIP: Following harvest, replant a few harvested roots for the following year's crop. Horseradish should be divided and replanted at least every 2 years to prevent roots from becoming woody.

CULTURE: Well-drained, friable soil with a pH range of 6.2-6.8 will yield the best results. When roots are received, work the soil about a foot deep and incorporate compost, manure, or fertilizer. Make a 5-6" deep furrow and plant root cuttings 12" apart, slanted 2-3" deep with the flat-cut end up. Irrigate if soil is dry and as needed throughout season. For smoother, larger primary root harvest, carefully remove secondary or side roots as crop grows (known as "lifting"). Save side roots for re-planting. If producing a wild-root or field-run crop, this process is not needed.
HARVEST: Roots can be harvested in late fall when 8-10" long and 2-3" in diameter, or in early spring before re-growth (dig roots before plant leafs out to maintain pungency). A hard frost will sweeten the flavor of horseradish. Lift plants up with spading forks or shovel, being careful not to damage the thick, fleshy tap roots.
STORAGE: Store trimmed, washed roots in perforated plastic bags or containers in refrigerator, unwashed roots in root cellar. Ideal temperature is 32-33°F (0-.1°C).
