Available for shipment in early March only. Zingiber officianale
Ginger in this climate? The craze has been sweeping the Northeast. Several successful farms in Maine proved to nonbelievers that the power of high tunnels, irrigation and organic fertility can produce a coveted hand of baby ginger, the most delicate and earthy of tropical crops. Don’t hide this precious gem by mincing it small or masking it in heavy sauces: try it as crystallized chunks in homemade vanilla ice cream, or sliced into thick batons in a zesty stir-fry, or slipped over the rim of a fancy cocktail (Baby Ginger Margs, anyone?) Its beauty eclipses supermarket ginger, too: the rose-tinged pearlescent skin will draw customers from yards away.
One pound can be cut into approximately ten to fifteen seed pieces.
Ships in early March, or as soon as weather permits. ②
