In Korea, it is called \"Jang Nweh Sam\" and people are actually growing them in the secluded mountains in Korea but they are not as valuable as wild ginsengs called \"San Sam\". I would love to hear from somebody who have experience growing wild simulated Korean ginseng here in US.

i'm from california and the weather here isn't as cold as it is in Korea/China where red ginseng grows. At least the weather wasn't cold enough for the ginseng i wanted to grow. Then I incurred problems of selling the ginseng and couldn't find a market to sell it in. I tried to do this on the side, as a part-time job and it didn't work out. Just my experience with it, maybe yours will be different.
Hi Bill, I am not familiar with Korean ginseng. How is it different from our sang? You said about walking up on it in the woods, how would you know that it's the Korean? It might grow here in the North East.
I didn't think that our sang grew anywhere west of the Mississippi. The having a market thing would definetely be a hinderence.
Are you still on second shift? I thought about stopping in to see you some evening.
I thought I read somwhere that the Korean ginseng was a lot bigger than the American, but after looking around for some pictures, it seems that they look very similar. I must have been thinking about Siberian ginseng. Siberian sang grows much taller and has black colored berries on it. I wonder if it will grow here.
Stop by work some time. I'm always here. At least it seems that way. Still second shift.
