The Q&A Archives: Horseradish Harvesting

Question: I planted horseradish roots last spring--they are over wintering in garden--will I be able to harvest this spring and and get a good crop?

Answer: Horseradish is usually harvested a little at a time, especially in the fall when it is said to improve in flavor. To harvest, simply remove a portion of a side root, leaving the rest in the ground to continue growing. Alternatively, if you have planted a number of roots, dig them individually over a longer period of time. You will be amazed at the size of the root of an established plant!
