What is wild ginseng selling for in Central WV?? 5 Years, 11 Months ago  
I'm getting low prices for my dried wild ginseng I think....but I could be wrong. I sold almost half a pound to my local buyer, and they are currently paying $400/pound. Is this anyway correct?

Also, my ginseng is usually always 10+ years or older. Thanks in advance!

Hang on until later in the year. Just like farming, you have to wait until the demand exceeds the supply.

I kinda expected that.....It's hard for me to hold anything, If I have a dollar in my pocket, for some reason I feel a need to spend it.

Any idea when the price spiked last season? (I haven't ginseng hunted in a few years)

Anyone??

Anyone know around what date the price spiked for the first time last season? I can't seem to find it online anywhere...


EDIT: Doesn't have to be WV btw, just lemme know when price went up in your state.

Last year me and my dad got $875 a pound in Ohio. If we would have waited till early November we would have gotten $1000 a pound. This year, it is starting out $450. Hold onto it. There is still a great demand for it in China.

Yeah, I'm going to try and hold all my ginseng until early Nov. incase the price for it does raise. Compared to last season, $400/pound here in WV just seems too low for me.
