If you can know a dealer in KY who will pay me $1200. a pound for ginseng for all I have right now, I will give you a $500. commission on the total sale.

I sell ginseng at different places.
Advice; Hold onto it till about the end of September to get the best prices.
last three years i have been giving it to my brother.
The scoope on ginseng buyers is, a lot of chinese people are contracting people out to buy large quantities of stuff"herbs" different stuff, and they mostly deal from newyork harbors,then they get some sub-contractors who promose to get like 500 pounds from our area's, so to meet these goals so they can make their profit they hire again some sub;s under them and set their price,so what you need to do is eliminate these middle dealers to really make the mony from your sell's and the best way to find these dealers is sit on your ginseng till buyer's become desperate to make their quota's.
Guy next door to me is selling his for $1200 dollars a pound right now. will try to find out from who his contact is.

No
The 392.00 is the current price for Gingeng here in Eubank, KY. If you have a couple pound or more they quoted me $400.00 per pound. Goldenseal or Yellow root is 23.00 a pound.
The snipping was a little off subject.

If they were going to outlaw it, they would not wait they would do so now.
There is over 15,000 pound of Ginseng each year dug in Kentucky alone.
That is 7 1/2 Ton.
Can you imagine the money?
They had considered it. Only because some under cover Fish & Wildlife people, sold some out of season to a few dealers here in the State of KY.
But think of the revenue that would be lost each year. Just for the acts of a few. 7 1/2 Ton, makes me want to hit the woods today lol.

I myself didnt think they would outlaw it either but with the amount of timber being cut in and around laurel county it is getting harded to find places to even get in the woods.. as for 7 1/2 tons i need to find where a different place to dig..lol..

Dont let the timbered areas turn you away. Thats the best place to look due to the thick growth and nobodyelse wants to fight the brush. I have found that the roots tend to be larger too. It just takes determination and thick pants. A dealer from Grant Co. has advertised $500/lb in our local paper.

Ginseng sucks...drink a mountain dew if you want energy.$1.10 a bottle
allright, smartass. why do you exist? what is your role in this world of ours; to excite the situation with your exxagerated ignorance?

mountain dew is mostly high-fructose corn syrup, water & caffeine.

ginseng is a lot more than a caffeine buzz. it's kind of viewed as the cure-all. a regulator... stimulates if you're down, calms if you're wired, while boosting all sorts of functions of life. in chinese medicine, which is very different than the western approach to healing, it is commonly believed that a life with ginseng can add a decade to your lifespan. chinese ginseng (panax) is the ONLY thing believed to rejuvenate your original qi ("chi"). it's also believed to be a powerful aphrosidisiac (I've yet to experiment with this), hence the reported use in viagra.

i wish you peace & curiosity

In 30 years of hunting ginseng I have found two 5 prongs, but last week a friend and I were hunting and he found a rare 7 prong. I didn't know they existed. It had 5 regular size prongs and two small prongs.
Just wondering if anyone else has ever seen one of these?

Oh, and I also talked to a buyer in Maryland today, and he is paying $525 a pound

ginseng spiraling downward to $300 a lb. because of the stock market and reluctance of the chinese to buy. Market does't look good. If you are planning to hold until next year watch out for mice and meal bugs. They love it.

Do you have a photo of the 7 prong ginseng plant? I would love to have a copy since I too have only found two 5 prong plants in my lifetime. Also, would you please provide a phone number or web address for the Maryland buyer?
