Ginseng typically takes at least seven years to reach a desirable size, so it is a slow but profitable crop.
After harvest, its roots are heated and soaked in a liquid containing other herbs when they are processed which causes the ginseng root to turn red.
This particular ginseng is the most widely used type of ginseng. The ginseng root has been used as medicine for dozens of ailments for more than 4,000 years.
