Wow! Latt,
Usually 2to3 gallons of goldenseal berries. Do you ever sell the roots and tops?

No I have not sold roots or plant tops for 35 years. I pick the berries and let them ferment the pulp off in a 5 gallon bucket half full of water. Then I end up with a pound to a pound and a half of seeds. I plant them rake and scatter method and give some away to friends too. I was really looking forward to getting some seed this year to plant in a new woods. This new woods has a ton of woodland plants like blood root, wild cucumber, false solomans seal, trillium, jack-n-the-pulpit etc but no goldenseal or ginseng. I planted some golden seal and ginseng seed in there last year but really wanted to plant about an acre or so of goldenseal seed this late fall and early winter.
Oh well maybe next year.

I sold my goldenseal roots for 21 a pound Saturday. Was offered 5 per pound for the tops, but I am going to hold them for a while longer. Latt, same here on the goldenseal berries. Maybe 1 plant out of 200 has a berry this year. I hope it is better next year.

ive been trying to find out when the season is for goldenseal here in ohio. from what ive gathered i think it is year round, or close to it. its like that in surrounding states, but i wanted to make sure before i dig anything. any help would be great, even if it is just telling me that im correct=)

You are correct, there is no closed season for digging goldenseal. I usually get out and dig a little every year. I wait until July when the berries have already ripened, but a guy could dig in early May shortly after they emerge if he wanted.

Prices for goldenseal are back up a little from the spring. I am paying around $20/dry pound (VERY clean and no mold). I might be able to do a little better if in combination with a good lot of ginseng.
