New York city grown, Organic American Ginseng

“I gave no shade, no pesticide and no chemical fertilizer…just water. This year I add worm casting from my worm farm. By adding it, some of the ginseng prong had 7 leaves, which is unheard of. I read somewhere that the maximum of leaves per prong is 6. I bought my seed from Robert Eidus, North Carolina Ginseng & Goldenseal Co.”
