Korea with excellent geographical conditions
It is very difficult to adapt and grow ginseng in a place that is not suitable for the natural environment such as climatic soil due to the strong selectivity of cultivated land because of its inherent botanical characteristics. In this regard, Korea has excellent geographic conditions suitable for growing ginseng.

Arable land where a lot of Korean Ginseng is cultivated at north latitude 36-38º, with the growth period of ginseng for 180 days longer than that of other countries (120-130 days). You can keep the unique taste and aroma of Korean Ginseng since the long growth period makes the internal structure more dense and harder.
