The Big Top Horseradish Root (Armoracia rusticana) is known and grown for its large, white tapered root that is often grated to add a tangy, spicy kick to just about anything. Above ground, the gorgeous, robust plant with large, wide, deep green edible leaves can grow 3'-5' tall. A traditional accompaniment to roast beef, but will take your tuna fish sandwich or avocado toast to another level.
