Hi all, Here I go again! I still haven't found what I'm looking for. I am beginning to feel like an idiot! I ran into this guy on the road the other day and he told me he had just come from selling 5 pounds of ginseng! I see what I'm sure is it but when I dig it up it looks like just plain old roots to me. I have seen just dug and dry ginseng before so I know what it looks like and that ain't it!
Admittedly I have been distracted from the cause lately, but since the season hasn't been open very long I figure all is not lost.
Can someone post pics of what wild ginseng should look like right now in Tennessee? I live about 25 minutes from Crossville, which is one of the 2 places left in the state where you can sell ginseng outright.not to a website. THANKS!!!!!!!!
someone help??????

Joy, I'd also recomend that if possible tag along with an experienced digger. This will be extremely beneficial. the right areas are the key, and an experienced person can show you other plants that grow in the same habitat. Kinda just like oak and hickory trees like the same environment, ginseng and black cohosh and yellow root and jack in the pulpit and maiden hare ferns and parachute ferns all like the same type of area.
