Description: Horseradish is a perennial herb native to Europe and Western Asia that is chiefly cultivated for its root. The leaves grow from a basal rosette and can reach a length of 50-90cm; they are broad, crinkly with serrated edges and are dark green in colour. The 4-petaled flowers are white to pale lilac in colour and form clusters on stems that grow from the base of the plant. The roots are gnarly, thick and fleshy and can grow to a depth of up to 30-60cm with fine rootlets attached to the main root. The roots are creamy white inside and pale tan on the outside.
