Description
The remarkable American ginseng plant was exported from the Appalachian Mountains to China in 1716. Like Chinese ginseng, it is revered as the supreme tonic that strengthens and sustains every system of the human body. It may also prove to be beneficial for the small farmer as a lucrative cash crop because it takes little effort to raise and is totally legal.
