Water Pepper, Wasabi Plant or Smartweed is known for its wasabi-like spice. A replacement for Wasabi (Horseradish) Root.
In Japan the leaves are used as a vegetable - these are from the cultivar, not the wild type which has a far more pungent taste. Now you can have the flavor of wasabi in your own garden. Can sprout seed for a lighter horseradish flavor.
Real wasabi is difficult to cultivate only growing along stream beds in mountain rivers in its native Japan, and that makes it quite expensive: as high as $70 to $100 per pound. Due to its high cost, a common substitute is a mixture of (western) horseradish (which normally costs less than $1/pound wholesale), mustard, and green food coloring.
