|Halacha - Maror - Horseradish or Romaine Lettuce?|
|Submitted by anonymous Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
|Answer: Either Romain lettuce or horseraddish are acceptable. Romain lettuce tends to be infested with bugs, and is is a serious aveira to eat a bug. Therefore, one should buy bug free lettuce or be prepared to invest serious time in washing and checking each leaf under a bright light. Horseraddish is difficult to eat the required amount of at least 17cc (.6 oz), unless you have a high tolerence for sharp foods.
