I am new to digging and i took my girlfriend and she found two three prongs and dig them before I got there and the berries want red yet they was still green and I was wondering if they will turn red after it is dug kind of like a tomato will turn if you pick it to soon thanks for any info
Some people say there is a chance if they were far enough along, but I don't know of any definitive research or trials saying yes they will or know they won't. It depends on if the seed was fully formed inside the pulp. Some plants could hold seed for another month. Since ginseng seeds are functionally underdeveloped at ripening anyway, their embryos continue to develop through the stratification period (18 months) after ripening on the plant. They probably have a lesser chance of germination, but all you could have done at that point was plant them and hope for the best.
Just so u know if u dig a legal plant with green berries on it stick plant back in ground sans root and the stem will put all effort into living. come back in 7-10 days and ur berries will be red! almost always.
