I have heard the words Malunggay and Hilligaynon as being Filipino translations of Horseradish, but they may actually be for Horseradish Tree, not the root.

A Machine Translation (English-Filipino) says: Horseradish Roots = Malunggay Roots

Horseradish Sauce Heinz


An old rumour says that Horseradish sauce was made by horses trampling the radish root to a pulp.  Not sure if that were true then, but not now, that’s for sure.

Malungay is aplenty in our place. The picture of leaves shown here is NOT that of Malungay.
