TOPIC: If you sell your ginseng green

If you sell your ginseng green 2 years 2 months ago #36699

To all you diggers, Please try and keep your roots as whole as possible using a good digging tool. Try not to scrape or break the feeder roots off.
If you intend to sell the roots green DO NOT WASH the roots, just kind of shake the dirt off and keep in a container in the refrigerator until you are ready to sell.
Washing the green roots will make them rot in the frig.

Thanks for the tips rootman. This is the first year I will be selling green. My buyers are recommending to also keep packed in some of the dirt from the immediate area. Any thoughts?

Packing them in your seng native soil would be a good idea.

We are talking about green ginseng. For it to keep, it must be handled properly and look good for market just like apples or peaches or any other perishable goods.

My buyers never \"crunch\" the roots. They are always very careful to not break anything if possible.
