Where does horseradish grow in South Africa?

Horseradish is mass-produced by only three farmers in South Africa. One such farmer is John Parr who farms on the farm Yaxham, which is nestled in the shadows of the Thaba Patchoa Mountain near Tweespruit. The farm was named after an English village in Norfolk by the first owners.

How long does it take to grow horseradish?

Horseradish planted in early spring will be ready to harvest by early spring of the following year. Horseradish takes between 140 and 160 days to harvest.

Horseradish develops well during the late summer months, so even if enough time has passed, avoid harvesting your horseradish until late fall or early winter.

What season does horseradish grow?

Horseradish grows the most during late summer and early autumn. For this reason, delay fall harvest until late October or early November, or just before the ground freezes. Harvest by digging a trench 12 to 24 inches deep along one side of the row.
