American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius) has young leaves and flower stem forming. 花旗蔘盆植的植株長出新葉與花莖.

Open to check the ginseng roots.  There are 6 roots, 3 thicker ones and 3 skinner ones.  You can see to compare with my thumb.  I must say these good looking produce for CDN$8.99 is excellent!   Great for ginseng root chicken soup…  Or my planting experiment!  Let’s the fun begins!  🙂

超市買的花旗蔘鮮品一盒共6根. 打開看看有3大3小…品質不錯並聞起來有明顯的蔘味.  一盒加幣8.99元,價錢不錯! 燉煮人蔘雞湯不錯!…  或者當我的種植實驗品!  照片中每根你都可以見到甦醒的綠色的葉芽.

Mature size:12″-18″(H) X 6″-9″(W). USDA Zones:4-7. Best growing them in shade in moist organic acidic soil.  Pale green flowers in late spring follow by red fruit.  Culinary and medicinal herb.  The harvested size for selling in the market is usually 5 years old.

成熟株高12-18吋,寬幅6-9吋.  很耐寒不耐熱也不耐乾旱.  以種植在散光或全蔭處為佳,喜酸性濕潤,富含天然腐殖質的土壤. 春末開淡綠色花後結紅色的果實.  兼具食用及藥用的植物.  市面上買到的通常是採收的5年參.

It is a slow growing medicinal perennial, often 5 years old plant only grow up to 4-prong (4 leaves stage) so next time when you consume ginseng you should appreciate this gift from the nature!

它是的生長速度非常緩慢的多年生藥草, 5年生常只有長到4片掌狀葉. 所以下次當你飲用/食用花旗參時,更要感謝這來自大自然的禮物!
