Wild ginseng grows naturally within its natural habitat conditions. Cultivated ginseng is grown as a crop by sowing seeds and consists of three types: woodsgrown, wild-simulated, and field-cultivated.

Woodsgrown ginseng is sown under natural shade in prepared beds and may require the use of fertilizers and pesticides.

Wild-simulated ginseng is sown under natural shade and natural habitat conditions but scattered and not in beds. This category is not recognized by all states, including Tennessee, and is treated as wild ginseng.

Field-cultivated ginseng is sown under artificial shade in prepared beds and often requires the use of fertilizers and pesticides.

Wild ginseng roots are about the size of an adult?s thumb and are lightweight, wrinkled, ringed, often branched, and dark tan in color . In comparison, cultivated ginseng roots are larger than an adult?s thumb and are heavy, smoother, few ringed, less branched, and light straw colored. The growth of cultivated ginseng is much faster than wild ginseng under normal conditions. Cultivated ginseng plants are more robust and produce more berries and seeds than wild ginseng plants.


Hope this helps to clarify them!
