Hi M

Beautiful flower!

I love fresh ginger! What I do is freeze as is and later when frozen I just grate it, no need to peel and I always have some available for cooking.

Are you sure that's the edible one? It looks more like shell ginger to me.

I do the same as Silvia and freeze then I can chop or grate it.

I wish my ginger would bloom! Is there a best time to harvest ginger? I heard fall was best - around October, but that doesn't make it written in stone. cora

W, glad to hear it. :o) I read some where all gingers were edible, just not all tasted good.

My Thai ginger does very well, but I haven't had luck growing the regular one. The Thai one is hotter.

I have a huge plant of a type of ginger but not sure if it is edible or not. it sure does smell like it tho. it seem to be in bloom all the time.

I did root a ginger that I bought at the grocers and it seens to be doin very well in a pot,next is to plant in the garden and hope it doesn't take over.
