hello guys, i just wonder what is the reasonable price for a 50 years old root, two days ago, I just bought one 36 years old dried root, it is really large,52 gram , it cost me $260, it is worth or not?
Value is often determined by the individual. It was worth it to you. Personally I wouldn't have paid that much. Roots showing over 35 years of age are pretty scarce and are worthy of a premium. This is where the individuals own sense of value comes into play. Last Fall prices topped out at about $700 for mixed lots of wild ginseng (roots of various ages ranging from 5 years on up). Your root weighed about 1 and 3/4 ounce. If you do the math you could get 2 ounces of average wild root for about $100. Now don't get me wrong the root you have described is a lot better than average. I just don't believe that I personally would have given that much for it, but if you got it for personal consumption then enjoy every bit of it. I truly believe that those old roots have stuff in them that is very good for you.
p.s. Most folks that have trouble posting pics on this site find that if they can resize their pics to a smaller pixel count that they can then get them to upload.
thanks i went back to where i picked that root today and decided that i would leave the other ones there to grow i couldn't bring myself to pick them in hopes maybe some day down the road i could pick another maybe bigger probably sounds crazy but i kinda want to protect that spot
