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!
