Put it on-line labelled "heritage/gourmet"; there are people with more money than they know what to do with; they'll buy snail "caviar", fer chrissakes. Don't know what it would cost to ship to Abu Dhabi, but you could offer free shipping/handling for orders of more than one pint. Hire some grunts to do the grinding. You could become the Prince of Pungency, Lord of Lacrimatousity, Seignure de Sinus-Clearance.
I think Sinus-Clearance is somewhere around Alsace-Lorraine; kind of Franco-German culturally; very amenable to horseradish; pronounced clearahnse, not clearence; one must be culturally sensitive, n'est-ce pas?

Silt/clay, high-altitude, super-arid, sun-drenched, irrigated-desert garden. Cold radiant-cooled nights. ~100 frost free days. Grow most of my own locally adapted landrace seed. GDD10C ~1300. Buy my book or subscribe to my newsletter at Lofthouse.com.
Years ago, actually decades ago, I was at a Seed Savers Exchange meeting at Decora. They had been given all the horse radish accessions from GRIN. It had been a couple of years and the horse radish had intercrossed and made lots of seeds. The seeds shattered and there were seedlings everywhere. They couldn't keep track of the origional accessions. Well,you know how SSE likes to keep track of accessions and keep them pure. So they asked those of us who were there if anyone wanted them, all or any subset of them. No hands were raised. I sometimes regret it but nostly I don't think about it.
And if anyone has any horseradish shoots/starts/'younglings' or anything to spare, I'd be very interested!
On Monday, I went out to see how/what my horseradish was doing and discovered that it was no longer there. It had been growing nearly wild, at the back corner of my garage for several years. But...it seems that it just couldn't out compete the burdock that seemed to sprout up there, overnight. I had thought I got rid of it last summer...it didn't show up last fall. Now the burdock is huge and there is no trace of the horseradish.
About 39° N, 79° 58' W at just over 2000'; ostensibly Zone 5B. Weather is highly variable and seldom as forecast, with about 49" annual rainfall. According to the maps, the climate zone border runs right through my yard.

wilscase: I'm a graduate student at Oregon State and have been working with populations segrgating for different color genes such as the B gene in Cucurbita. I'm curious if anyone has experience with crosses in Cucurbita maxima between grey blue types and orange?

wilscase: I have been backcrossing to the grey parent for 4 generations and have finally selfed the heterozygotes (for the Bmax gene) the populations have segregated for diffuse bicolor (pink/blue, orange green), blue green, blue, green, pink (salmon) and orange
Oct 18, 2022 21:36:29 GMT -5
wilscase: The genes involved are Bmax and bl. I have observed that Bmax is incompletely dominant to wild type (green). I have read that bl is incompletely recessive to Bl(wild type). I'm curious if anyone else has observed the behavior of Bmax in a grey/blue type
Oct 18, 2022 21:38:28 GMT -5
wilscase: It appears that bl and Bmax are interacting to produce different shades of salmon and pink.

wilscase: I'm also interested in any other color genetics, especially the relationships between B and L genes. In the right background these genes can dramatically increase Carotenoids (vitamin A)
