Why Grow Fresh Ginger?

  • For the doesn't-get-any-fresher flavor!
  • These roots are non-GMO and have not been treated with the sprout retardant commonly used on grocery store ginger
  • Ginger produces tall, attractive plants with wide, ribbed leaves. In regions with a long growing season flowers may develop in the fall.
  • Where winters are cold, grow in a container, overwinter indoors and start fresh in the spring
