Following harvest, our Canton ginger is washed, trimmed and packed in 5 kilogram boxes and sent to national markets. Canton ginger produces a hot, fragrant kitchen spice and is often used as a quintessential ingredient of Indian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese and many South Asian cuisines for flavoring dishes such as seafood or goat meat and vegetarian cuisine.
