We don't provide any packaging, so you must bring your own container. If you know the exact weight you need, please select "by weight (g)" and enter the number of grams. Alternatively, you can choose to bring your container and simply "fill it up" or fill it "half full" etc. Since all containers vary in size, if you choose one of these options we'll weigh and price your order when you collect it. Your selection helps us estimate how much to bring with us.
Ginger, Zingiber officinale, is a flowering herbaceous perennial in the Zingiberaceae family whose rhizome, Ginger root, is used extensively as both a spice and a herbal medicine. Growing around 1m tall, Zingiber officinale has pale yellow flowers with purple edges that arise directly from the rhizome on separate shoots.
Ginger – in the same family as Turmeric, Cardamom and Galangal – was one of the first spices exported from Asia, arriving with the spice trade into Europe, and was popular in ancient Greece and Rome.
Organic Herb trading source Indian Ginger from the Kerala and Karnataka regions where growing conditions are ideal. They work closely with the local Ginger farmers and suppliers in India – who are pioneers of certified organic and fair agriculture – to review growing and processing methods to achieve the best-quality crop.
The plants are grown in complex ecosystems of many different crops, all complementing each other and making use of available resources. For example, Ginger enjoys some shade, so grows well under Coconut palms, Jack fruit and Gliricidia trees, which in turn have Pepper vines growing up their trunks.
