Horseradish is a perennial crop belonging to the Brassicaceae family. This plant has been in cultivation from the earliest times, but its exact place of origin seems to be unknown. Hooker considers that it is possibly a cultivated form of Cochlearia macrocarpa, a native of Hungary; other authorities consider it indigenous to the eastern parts of Europe, from the Caspian and through Russia and Poland to Finland. (1) Both the root and leaves of Horseradish were universally used during the Middle Ages as a condiment due to its extremely pungent flavor, in Denmark and Germany. (2)
