TOPIC: My biggest root ever.

My biggest root ever. 4 years 1 month ago #24007

I read this forum all the time but don't post. Thought I'd brag a little. I've seen bigger from you guys but this is my personal best. Been digging for about four years in Ohio


Apparently my picture is too big , I'll have to figur out how to reduce it so I can post the picture.

Very nice root, I've been digging for almost 20 years now and will tell you I've probably only dug 10-15 roots that were over an ounce, biggest on I ever got was 1.8 ounces. Definitely one to be proud of.

I'm also an Ohio guy and appreciate those 1+ ounce roots. Seems like I only manage to find about a handfull of them each year.. Very nice find, but too bad that neck snapped off:(

Nice one! How many scars on the part of the neck that broke off? Looks to be pretty old.

Very nice find indeed...and kudos on taking care of it properly.

I too first thought the neck was broken off, but isn't that a bud on the end of the white feeder root?

Yes it is. I got the complete root, the two pieces broke apart as I lifted it.
