Frank..I believe your talking about Redd Nutter.
I never had the pleasure of meeting him in person but I have met a lot of ginsengers over the years that sold to him. I started buying in 1980 and before that it was my Grandfather. .Guy Coffman and he started in 1930.
I miss the good ol days ..I've meet some real gentleman of the trade over the years.
Guy Hamilton out of Va. and Marvin Mallow out of Ohio always makes my list of legends in the trade that are no longer with us.

Strong Prong... That was him! I am sure that there are and have been many others such as your grandfather and the ones you mentioned but Redd was one of a kind. He is sorely missed by all that knew and dealt with him!

Thanks!

Wet wet day in the woods but still came out with 13 oz in about 5 hours. Max and I found a few that were yellow but most were still good and green. The heavy rains have knocked the smaller stuff down. And I have still yet to find anything bigger than a 4 prong.
