Can you eat any type of ginger?

mersiepoo(6)January 12, 2012

I've got a super hardy ginger (it is supposed to bloom with a giant yellow fragrant flower in the summer, I'm holding my breath). My question is, can I eat the rhizomes like regular ginger? I forget the name of the ginger, but it is a pretty popular type.
