    The green paste you've been eating with your sushi isn't really wasabi. If you check the ingredients on the packet, you might see a mixture of sweetener, horseradish and perhaps a small percentage of the real thing. Real wasabi is hard to come across and it can cost $250 per kilo. So what actually is wasabi, and why is it so expensive?

$250 per kilo is kinda cheap, considering it would be enough for like 2-5years per person ( if it stayed that long ofc ).

Sounds like the Japanese missed out on giving Wasabi a Japanese designation of origin product the same way Mexico has protected Tequila and France protected Champagne.

I find it funny that when you put the word “real” in something people automatically believe it’s better. Like half the comments in this post haven’t tried it yet but I bet even if it taste like crap they’ll say it’s better. I personally like the strong taste that comes from the “fake” wasabi more but to each their own. I only wish people weren’t so blinded by what other people tell them and actually just figure out what taste better from their own personal taste. On the same note, I remember growing up and practically every none Asian people would make fun of me when we eat fish but now it seems like the trend is Sushi or eastern food so everyone loves them now when they couldn’t stand anything raw, oh and the smell. My point, people needs to open their mind a bit more, Don’t judge before you try and stop being a follower. Anyway, yeah wasabi is good 😬

I've seen that exact same stem in the produce section just recently where I shop- seriously. Of course, that store tends to be rather pricey to begin with. They were trimmed and sitting in a watery tray just like they showed it here. Now, I've got to go back to see how much it is. I didn't pay too much attention to that when I saw it because I was in a rush to get out of there.

How does Wasabi compare to Horseradish in terms of that Zing you get in your nose? Most Koreans use Horseradish or mustard plants for that spicy taste.

I've tried some real wasabi in Japan, and the most easy way to put this is the real one taste like vegetable, with some naturel smell and flavor. Highly recommend to try the real thing whether you like it or not, it blew my mind a bit.

I've been able to taste fresh wasabi only once at a kaiseki restaurant in Kyoto. A small amount was delicately placed atop otoro nigiri sushi. There's no taste quite like it, it was the only time I actually enjoyed wasabi because it was the real deal. 😆 It had a floral, slightly sweet, and very aromatic taste. Its flavor doesn't last very long on the tongue, just kind of disappears with very little to no "burn".

Ehm... Flowing water... Gravel or similar growth medium. Cool environment? Isn't this just a perfect plant to grow in Aquaponics with a few tweaks to the filtering system and mineral additions. Should be fairly simple to grow in such systems. Albeit it might take some tweaking to get the water quality right. I cannot see how it will be difficult. But sure, removing the human manpower involved, might be difficult.

I quick calculation: a single wasabi root weighs about 60 grams. It will provide enough wasabi for a 5 people dinner. So one kilo is around 17 roots, $250 per that is around 15 dollars per root. A quick search for raw wasabi root at rakuten.co.jp: as cheapest, it goes by 500 jpy (around 5 dollars) per root, so it isn't always *quite* as expensive as mentioned here, but still, 5 bucks for a piece of a root!

It is not so expensive if you think about it. It can get up to 250 a kilo, so it can also be cheaper than that. At the same time, you don't eat it that often nor in big quantities so you could buy 50 grams of it at a time, and it would last loads. 50 grams would be about 13 USD, not cheap but not expensive by any means.
