Morar Shoots originate as the shoots of a horseradish root. Horseradish has a long history of culinary and medicinal use, dating back to ancient Egypt. The first recorded mention of horseradish can be found in the ‘Ebers Papyrus’, believed to have been written around 1550 BC. A valuable source of information about ancient Egyptian medical practices, herbal remedies, and various medical conditions of that time. During this era, horseradish was utilized for its potential therapeutic properties, such as aiding digestion.
The sharp elements present in horseradish, including mustard oils, are known to possess antibacterial properties, which contributed to its perceived health benefits. Horseradish's intense and spicy flavor made it a valuable ingredient for enhancing the taste of food and masking undesirable odors and flavours. A crucial function during ancient times when preservation methods were limited.
Horseradish has significant symbolism and culinary importance in Jewish culture, particularly during the Passover holiday (Pesach) which commemorates the Jewish liberation from slavery in ancient Egypt. Its use during the Passover Seder is a way to connect with the past and pass down the story of the Exodus to future generations.


Morar Shoots are available year-round and can be stored for up to seven days in the dark at temperatures between 2-7°C. Produced according to socially responsible cultivation methods, Morar Shoots meet the kitchen's hygiene standards. The shoots are ready to use, grown according to all the modern food safety measures.
