Ginger is a perennial rhizome that reaches a maximum height of about 90 cm during cultivation. Usually, the rhizomes are lobed, light yellow, and have an aromatic odor.
The plant grows in groups into many side branches, and begins to wither as the plant develops. In Indian folklore medicine, dried ginger is mainly used as a digestive aid.
Dried ginger also has a variety of medical properties, such as anti-inflammatory, nourishing liver, strengthening immunity, anti-infection and suppressing cough. India is the world’s largest producer of ginger. Orissa, Kerala, Karnataka, Arunachal Pradesh, West Bengal, Sikkim and Madhya Pradesh are the main ginger states in India.
The IISR Varada, IISR Mahima and IISR Rejatha grown in Kerala are high-quality ginger varieties available globally. Ginger varieties like Bahrica and Amaravathi have higher curcumin and gingerol content. Cochin ginger is the best variety on the global market due to its lemon-like flavor and low fiber content.
