anybody have any idea what black cohosh is going for? I also need a buyer BTW. most buyers i can locate (1 in w.va. that i can find) these days don't want to pay a fair price.(1 of those you do all the work we make all the money deals.) at 1 time it was 3.15 lb dry .65 cents green i know it can fluctuate but at the "standard" price here of 1$ a lb, it's not worth it. i would be willing to go out of state for a buyer if they buy large quantity. don't think it's regulated like sang going over state lines but not certain. info on that to may be helpful. anyway thanks in advance

I understand that Black Cohosh has been over produced this year. If the market is loaded with it, Dealers will have to hold onto it until later this year or early next year to sell. This may be why the price has cheapened. The price you quote sounds pretty cheap.
It has no regulated season as far as I know and if there is a season in your state, there still is no law about selling across state lines.

Here is a pic. I will check with a frienk in Arkansas, but I think poke is a southern plant.

I'm about to dig a bumper crop of poke out of my back yard. That stuff is taking over. I have just broken it of for the last few years. It's time to dig the root and get rid of it.

My echinacea angustifolia drys within a week on a box screen 3-4 days in the hot summer. I put the screeens on cinderblocks to alllow air to flow through. I stir the roots around a couple of times a day. at night i place the screens over fans. If you leave in a bag or don't allow air you spend much longer drying thus have a greater chance of having moldy root. Once it is dry do not allow it to get we again or it may mold easily. always a wash is needed do so when it is the first day out of the ground.

Seng must be sold in the state of harvest unless the digger can get it certified or the digger becomes a buyer and buys a license to become a Ginseng dealer. If you do that, you must do all the paperwork and get certification papers that tells what state it has been harvested in.
It is a pain in the rear to jump through the hoops to certify your seng.
I just certified 102 pounds to sell this evening and it required about 15 pieces of paperwork. all but 3 papers was log papers.

I have a question for you Don. Or anyone that knows. Is it possible to overdry roots? If im not positive they’re 100% dry will it hurt to let them dry another week?


Looking to sell many different roots in PA. Please send me a PM. Thanks!

Sorry Don, but wild ginseng definitely does grow in North Dakota. I don't know about digging regs but I have a friend there that has sent me pics.

Another thing! Drying roots in the attic is not a good idea. Mold will become an issue,
This is not directed at Don. He is a friend of mine and very knowledgeable about roots. I happen to know a little about roots too! Just trying to help.

Terry I do know that some person had grown some commercial seng in North Dakota, and I don't think I have ever heard of that state having a season on Ginseng.They sent a sample to me and it was the darn mess. I would have to see the seng with my own eyes to know that it grows wild there.
