Tyra finally got it right. The neighbor was a former neighbor. I
recently moved from VA to NC and couldn't find a good local source for
fresh roots, so I asked my neighbor to mail me a few from a large
patch he has in his garden.
Fortunately, I've found a vendor at a local farmers market to keep me
Rob, thanks for the answer! (Actually, just after I posted my final guess, the
other possibility hit me.....the more correct one....that you were the one who
had moved away.) T'was fun anyway.
I'm glad you got your horseradish, In fact, although I love the stuff, I
usually stick to fresh-in-jars. But because of this thread, I was overjoyed
yesterday when my local supermarket advertised fresh horseradish root. Liars.
Not a piece to be found. ("Oh, yeah, I think we had some yesterday....") I'm
going to try my local Farmers' Market next time. Someday, when I have a few
acres, I'll plant my own.

No, but as incredibly prolific as it is, I'll bet you could grow it in a
pot. Er, a tall pot! They don't seem to put out much in the way of laterals,
must be concentrated in the tap root. I STILL have horseradish growing, just
because I can't seem to make it go away. I see a small batch in my crystal
ball. Beats store-bought in color, taste, and texture. Yum!
