TOPIC: North Carolina High Country Seng

Re:North Carolina High Country Seng 3 years 1 month ago #32213

Great pictures. I always love the surprise roots that fool you with little tops. It's worth checking every one. Although, I think I find larger tops with smaller roots, than I do the other way round.

Yeah I hear ya on that, I find a lot of big plants that just have tiny roots, I've dug several before that I've got the root out and think I had to have broke part of the root off and will dig a huge hole looking for the rest of it only to find nothing.

Hey NCmountaindigger here is another great example of NC High Country Seng.
The root on this one weighed right at 2 oz.
Big 4 with extra leaves on 2 Prongs (I believe I showed you this one, just wanted to share with everyone else)

WOW... that is some nice looking seng. Some fine roots to.

2.4 oz is a whopper.

1.3 is the largest I have found this year so far here in middle TN.

Last weekend about 1/3 were yellow here... and then this weekend almost everyone I found was yellow.

Another week or two and I think most of ours will be gone for the season. When they start turning pale yellow and looking all faint... a good rain will flatten them and then it's pretty much over for the year.

Dig em while you can !

I agree with TN hunter, nice ginseng.

That last picture with your boot in it for reference shows a VERY healthy ginseng plant. The leaves are very distinct with a deep green color and extra thickness to the leaf that makes it stand out.

I have seen many thousands upon thousands of ginseng plants in person as well as many thousands of pictures and ginseng plant tops. Ginseng that looks like that are extra healthy are more rare.

The soil must contain about everything needed to produce such a nice plant top. Would love to see whats in that soil.

Thanks for posting the pic.

Had a good weekend hunting,perfect weather, maybe even too cold Saturday, had a high of 52, only thing could have made the weekend better would have been if my Vols could have found a way to beat them gators, but once again it wasn't meant to be. I went to 2 different locations this weekend, location is gonna determine everything from here on, Saturday I went to a dark wet holler which surprisingly was probably 75 percent green plants like these.
