How long does ginseng grow best?
The effect of ginseng growing for six years is the best. As for the one hundred year old ginseng, it will be lignified, which will make the medicinal materials hard, but it is not good. There are also ginseng harvested in about one year, that is, the so-called garden ginseng, which is artificially cultivated, and the effect is not as good as that of six years old ginseng.
What is the growth cycle of ginseng
Six years is the best time to eat ginseng; the temperature in Changbai Mountain is tens of degrees below zero, but it lasts for a long time. The growth of authentic ginseng and wild ginseng is very slow. The mature season of ginseng has been reached in six years, and the nutritional components have reached a peak. Ginsenoside has been fully formed. Then growing up, it is just the increase of volume, not the increase of nutrients. The planting cycle of one organic ginseng is 6 years. It is no problem to obtain so many organic certification.
