Harvesting ginger is like harvesting potatoes: you want to dig up the whole plant! Ginger can be harvested at any stage of its growing process, but the best time to harvest is when the plant is 8-10 months old. To grow more ginger, simply choose rhizomes for replanting and redo the process.
- Ginger is ready for harvest when the plant has blossomed. By this time, leaves should be dry and stems falling over. The rhizomes will have a firm skin.
