Little more about Drumstick Tree Also known as the Horseradish Tree, Ben Tree, Benzolive, Malunggay and Drumstick Tree. It grows mainly in semi-arid tropical and subtropical areas, corresponding in the United States to USDA hardiness zones 9 and 10. While it grows best in dry sandy soil, it tolerates poor soil, including coastal areas.

It is a fast-growing, drought-resistant tree that is native to the southern foothills of the Himalayas, Africa and the Middle East. Today it is widely cultivated in Africa, Central and South America, Sri Lanka, India, Mexico, Malaysia and the Philippines.

One word of caution: When grinding any hot ingredients in a spice grinder or blender or whatever, the vapors from said heat are vaporized! Said vapors are hard on the eyes and lungs! I learned this the hard way, many years ago grinding some very "mature," very strong horseradish roots!
Kind of like frying hot chili peppers!
