American Ginseng Products

(Panax quinquefolius)

Welcome to the Emerald Castle Farms Ginseng Products page. This page has to do with products intended to be consumed, rather than transplanted and grown. If you are looking for rootlets for transplanting, please visit the Ginseng Rootlet page or, you can visit our Ginseng Seed page if you are looking for high quality ginseng seed for fall planting.

American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) is one of the most highly prized medicinal herbs. While American ginseng is listed as a CITES II endangered species (thereby regulating harvest and export from each state where it grows), those regulations are primarily aimed at protecting wild ginseng –as opposed to cultivated ginseng. Eastern medicine and culture places a high value on wild ginseng roots over cultivated roots. However, the saponins called ginsenosides (i.e., active constituents) tend to increase levels with age, but are often higher in cultivated ginseng root.

Ginseng is commonly associated with a variety of positive health effects. Most well known are those associated with increased energy, stress inoculation, improved memory, and as an aphrodisiac. In recent years, research has increased dramatically for both Panax ginseng and American ginseng. Some of the health benefits can be found in this article by Yuan, Wang, Wicks, & Qi, (2010) Chemical and Pharmacological Studies of Saponins with a Focus on American Ginseng ( This article appears in the Journal of Ginseng Research ( which would be a great place to do some further research on your own.

The ginseng products we offer are 100% natural without any additives. The cultivated ginseng we offer, whether fresh whole roots, dry roots, root fiber, or powdered ginseng, originate from a reputable small family farm in Wisconsin. Occasionally, we may have fresh or dry woodsgrown and wild simulated root when those products are available.

Fresh Cultivated Ginseng Root

This root is fresh from the fields. The picture below shows the fresly harvested roots. They remain unwashed to avoid spoilage which would result if the roots are not dried right away after being washed. Once chilled in a cooler, the ginseng roots will either be shipped fresh to fullfill orders (after removing excess dirt), or they will be held for a couple weeks before washing and drying.

We are offering both three year old and four year old roots this fall. We anticipate harvest of the three year roots toward the end of September, and the four year old harvest toward the end of October. Orders for fresh roots will be available shortly after the appropriate roots are harvested.
