Question: 827-4012
I planted horseradish root cuttings late spring... they came up but now what? Andrew, West Virginia

Mort's Answer:
Enjoy the fruits of your labor. Horseradish roots store well in the ground through the winter. It usually ripens when the plant is 20 to 30 inches high. Armoracia rusticate is propagated by taking a slice about six inches and a quarter inch wide. Put the root cutting back in the ground with the large end up. Cuttings should be 12 inches apart. You can grate the rest of the root for pickling or eating.
