I posted this question in alternative medicine and someone blasted me for “contributing to killing a species”. So I moved it here. Let me start by saying this plant is abundant where I live. I dig only in the legal season, plant the berries, and leave the two and one prongers in the ground. Here’s my question… This question is for people who dig, dry, and sell ginseng roots. A buddy of mine has roots he was drying that have mold on them. (I already know how that happened). The question now is how to get rid of the mold. I told him apple cider vinegar kills mold but he will have to re-dry them. I don’t know if they will smell like vinegar or if the root man will buy them if he smells the vinegar. What do YOU do if you have a batch of roots that begin to mold? At $350 a pound throwing them away isn’t an option. Thanks.

I was recently visiting Korea, and the men there believe ginseng root is good for sexual potency in men. I also noticed that the ginseng products (tea, candies, drinks) are all extremely expensive. Seems to me that it’s just a superstition, which the notoriously money-hungry Koreans use as an excuse to sell useless stuff. Anyone have the facts on ginseng’s real qualities (if any)?
