The plant that grows wild in Vietnam is unexpectedly precious ginseng, the people who dig to sell it for $15/kg

Rock ginseng is also known as rock ginseng and wire ginseng.

Only places above 1000m high have special soil and climatic conditions for the rock-penetrating ginseng to grow and develop.

In Vietnam, rock-penetrating ginseng is abundant in the provinces of Yen Bai, Lao Cai, Tuyen Quang…

Rock-penetrating ginseng grows in clusters, and each tree is a long, tangled string, so it is difficult to find their roots.

According to experts, rock ginseng is a type of ginseng in the same family as Ngoc Linh ginseng. Up to the present time, ginseng through rock has been named in the list of rare and precious ginsengs of Vietnam

Both the leaves, roots, and stems of the tree can be used as medicinal herbs and have many beneficial effects on health.

Ginseng penetrates the rock for year-round harvest, but the main crop is in the fall

On the market, fresh stone ginseng is priced at 200,000 VND($9)/kg, and dried sliced ​​ginseng with gold stars is 350,000 VND($10)/kg.

In recent decades, people in the highlands have expanded the model of planting ginseng through rock, bringing in a significant source of income
