Yes, Ginsing sells for A LOT. The thing is though that you have to wash the dirt/mud off of it and let it dry completly before you sell it. My mother used to hunt it and golden seal and different ones. She had pans sitting all over the house drying them. Some places may take it damp but I'm sure they pay less per pound.
You can do a search about growing these things and it will tell you how, may even give you prices and places to contact. She used someone out of Louisville. He would come and meet her once a month to pick it up.

The time my brother sold it was way back in the 60's. I guess prices have gone way up since then.

I think someone said $800.00 per pound. But it takes a lot to make a pound when it's dry.

Looks like it's going to open between $350-400.
Friend of mine called several dealers and this is what he was told.

Well humm Someone on here posted $800.00 per pound. I think (like 20 years ago) my mom was getting $360.00 per pound, dry wild. Either way, it's good money if you like to be in the woods, fight sneaks & wild life and pple's pot patches, I guess. I'm too chicken for all the above. I'd be interested in cultivating it though if it paid ok.

I have not had time to find that book on ginseng, I'll have more time next week when I'm off the whole week from work. Very interesting book on ginseng.
