Wasabia Japonica is a “tough to learn” name of Wasabi. Famous in the form of green paste, it is generally used for seafood dishes particularly with sushi.

Cultivation of real wasabi is relatively difficult and expensive because it grows under specific conditions and requires (not require) clean, running water. It takes about 18 months to reach its mature height of about 14 inches (36 cm).

Wasabi is a root vegetable and is converted into a green paste by grating. The wasabi root is famous for its strong and hot flavor but interestingly it leaves no burning aftertaste sensation in one’s mouth.
