My FIL used to be a 'seng hunter. I never was. And lately in the court news in the local papers I've seen people charged with "illegal possession of ginseng," so I have no interest in starting something that may get me arrested.

Up here in the mountains of WV seng grows in the most inaccessable places, heads of deep hollars. The best places are kept secret and if I told anyone I would have to track them down and shoot them...... I said it is a secret........

Looks like the plant on the right. Berries get red this time of year. The other plants are Virginia creeper and can sometimes look like seng if you're new at it.

Don't save the tops but, you could. They have the same chemicals in as the root but, the root is what sells. I do pinch the tops off though on stuff not being dug as to prevent others from finding them. Some people will dig everything up and leave nothing. To be exported the roots must be five or more years old with the neck attached. You want to get all the feeder roots too as best ya can. Good luck.
