About

Ginger is a crop that needs a warm and moist climate, bright sunlight, and heavy rainfall. The harvest begins nine months after planting, when the stalks begin to wither. The rhizomes are twisted and dug up carefully with a hoe. These ‘hands’ are then cleaned, washed, scraped, boiled, peeled carefully with specially designed knives and dried in the sun for about eight days. Ginger is an soil-exhausting crop that requires heavy fertilization; so when possible it is grown in rotation with other crops.
