Hungary Source of Around Half of Horseradish in EU
Hungarian farmers produce around half of the horseradish in the European Union, the National Agriculture Chamber (NAK) said on Friday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Last season, growers produced over 10,000 tonnes of the crop, a fixture on the Easter table, exporting 80-90%, mostly fresh horseradish, to Germany, Poland, the United Kingdom, and the Czech Republic among other EU markets.
Horseradish is grown mainly by small farmers, providing a livelihood for "several hundred" families, NAK said. The crop was grown on 1,194 hectares last year.
