Gingers, COMMON (Zingiber officinale) Culinary Ginger Root


USES: Food / Spice, Medicinal, Ornamental

Ginger or ginger root is the rhizome of the plant Zingiber officinale, consumed as a delicacy, medicine, or spice. Ginger produces clusters of white and pink flower buds that bloom into yellow flowers. Because of its aesthetic appeal and the adaptation of the plant to warm climates, ginger is often used as landscaping around subtropical homes. It is a perennial reed-like plant with annual leafy stems, about a meter (3 to 4 feet) tall. Traditionally, the rhizome is gathered when the stalk withers; it is immediately scalded, or washed and scraped, to kill it and prevent sprouting. The fragrant perisperm of Zingiberaceae is used as sweetmeats by Bantu, also as a condiment and sialogogue.

Common Ginger orders now ship by the Priority Mail Flat Rate box. A Medium Flat Rate Box (MFRB) holds about 7 pounds and the Large Flat Rate Box (LFRB) holds about 12 pounds. Root piece sizes vary of course.

Note: Most Ginger roots found in grocery stores these days have been treated to prevent growth, via government mandate. If specimens have an “X” stamped into them they wont grow. The rhizomes being sold here are perfectly good for both eating and growing.

Plant Germplasm (definition): Any portion of genetic material that can be grown into a live plant. Examples include seeds, stem cuttings (via many methods including air layering), root cuttings, root divisions (multiplication via division), leaf cuttings, leaf fragments (in tissue culture), rooted nodes (vines), “eyes” (offshoots from potato tubers), cacti pieces, etc. The term germplasm can also be used to describe a collection of genetic resources for an organism such as as a seed collection or, for trees, a nursery. ROOT CROPS: Buy live tropical Yam (Dioscorea) plants. Edible Sweet Potato (Ipomoea batatas) tubers for sale. Order Live Malanga (Xanthosoma), Eddo & Taro (Colocasia esculenta) corms. Purchase perennial ginger (Zingiber officinale), cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum) & turmeric (Curcuma longa zedoaria) rhizomes. Selling Jicama (Pachyrhizus erosus) 'yam bean' seeds. Live Semi-Aquatic Water Chestnut (Eleocharis dulcis) bulbs shipped worldwide. Note: Typically our bulb type live products are dunked into bucket full of an aqueous (water) solution of "Myco Madness" (mycorrhizal fungi), Humic Acid & Fulvic Acid along with the PGR's Brassinolide, Indole Butryic Acid (IBA) and Naphthalene Acetic Acid (NAA) to ensure root growth is triggered. Next the germplasm materials are packed into organic Coconut Coir which itself contains natural rooting hormones. If you intend to eat the roots you'll be ordering include a note and the roots won't be dunked in the PGR solution (which is more effective than compound powder or gel even though water doesn't 'stick' to it).
