History

 

Ginger was known in China as early as 400 B.C. The Greeks and the Romans thought it was of Arabian origin because it was sent from India through the Red Sea. They used it as a spice. It was introduced into Jamaica and other islands of the West Indies by the Spaniards and ginger was exported from the West Indies to Spain in considerable quantities around the year 1547 A.D.

Habitat

It is rhizomatous and perennial herb. The rhizomes are aromatic, thick-lobed, pale yellowish, differing in shape and size in the different cultivated types. The herb develops several lateral shoots in clumps, which begin to dry when the plant matures. The leaves are narrow, distichous, linear- lanceolate, dark green; the flowers, in spikes, greenish yellow with a small dark purple or purplish black tip.
