TOPIC: Update on ginseng prices?

Re:Update on ginseng prices? 6 years 1 week ago #15437

I used a rule this year that I would not dig anything smaller than my thumb. With one exception and that was if the plant was 40-50 years old and was in bad soil and not going to get much bigger I took it. Anything smaller went back in the ground and if I had a dollar for every top I broke off to keep people from digging small plants I'd be have a BIG pile of dough. I only ended up with 3 pounds but it is a very very nice three pounds and I am really proud of how it looks laying in the box. Hope the price keeps going up because this is just to nice a seng to sell this low.

Thats the way you dig. If you are in Ohio, I'd certainly like to take a look at your lot and make you an offer.

Here are a few good ones. I put my seng in a large box and afraid if I dig more out I'm going to break some. Most my seng is at lest half this size. These roots are totally dry.

If it all looks like that, you have a select lot. I don't see many of those...

They are pretty select. But as I said they were selected in the woods and not from a big pile with small root sorted out. I am amazed at how some roots shrink a lot and some not so much. I can tell you where some on here say it takes 150-200 roots to make a pound I would guess that I was around 80 to 100 roots (maybe less) to make my pounds if that is any indication. I think we would have a distance problem as I am just above Marietta and you are from the North country.

I'll shoot you an email. I get down that way to buy ginseng pretty regularly.

Woah...these are nice looking roots. I'm sure your buyer will be happy to see your lot.

And aren't these the the type of roots we all love to see :-)

Long neck, good size, bulby, root hair, nice color and texture. I wonder how it taste...
