(Zingiber officinale) Ginger root is the rhizome or underground stem of this Asian plant. Ginger root can be harvested at any time, but plants require several months of hot and fairly humid conditions to make the maximum yield. Plants may reach 4 feet in height. Mature roots are plump and sleek outside, white, juicy and aromatic within. May be grown outdoors in full sun in most of the country, lifting mature roots before ground freezes in autumn. Replant smaller roots next spring, preferably starting early in a sunny windowsill or greenhouse. 2 plants.

We are super excited to be offering a selection of live plants, these are produced for us by tissue culture, a natural process that produces plants that are generally high-quality and disease free. We have some stunning new food crops in our plant listing, we hope you will try some of the exciting rare plants we offer this year. Pre-order now, as supplies on some these will be limited. The plants we ship are small, but sturdy, and we offer a 30 day guarantee on live plants. Most plants will be 6”-12” in height. Plants will ship as available after the first of April to the end of June. We will ship orders to southern zones first. No guaranteed delivery dates. No orders shipped outside of the USA. No Extra shipping costs, just pay our regular $3.50. (PRE-ORDER PLANTS WILL SHIP AFTER APRIL 1, 2017)

What are the pros? Freshness matters

What are the cons? Must finish indoors in zone 5.

Review:

Can't wait to try your plants, but thought you might want to know my experience growing these from grocery-store roots. Fat grocery store roots with tiny nubbins at the joints WILL grow...after months of waiting and watering carefully, in windowsill pots. But plants already started will be much more reliable. (50% loss of the store-bought ones, during attempts to root them.) PLANT IN GIANT, DEEP POTS in non-tropical areas. Regular pots gave stunted baby rootlets. And growing in pots does work if you have a sunny windowsill or lights on timers in a basement "grow-room." About six months after the plants began to grow, I got little-finger sized ginger roots in my 5"-deep pots. (Morals of the Story: Buy plants, not plain roots; plant in deep, wide pots.)
