What Horseradish herb Is:

Horseradish is pungently persistent in more ways than taste. Cut off the top of the plant, including the top of its roots, and a new top (and new roots) will grow. Although the weed doesn't reseed itself, it nevertheless reappears season after season. If you ever plant horseradish and then change your mind, you'll have to get rid of every trace of the roots, or the plant, with its large (a foot or two long), tongue-shaped, similarly pungent leaves, will grow anew. In early times, horseradish was well-known and often eaten among the Germans and Dutch, but it wasn't accepted as a common condiment in England until the sixteenth century or so. The name has no equine implications. In early England, horse also meant "coarse," as in inedible.

Horseradish root stimulates blood circulation and has antibiotic action. It can be used externally and internally.
