|The cultivation of Ganghwa ginseng began during
the era of King Gojong (1232 A.D.) of the Goryeo Dynasty. In 1920, Ganghwado Island was designated a special district for ginseng cultivation. At
the onset of the Korean War (1950-1953), the people of Gaeseong City (the birthplace of ginseng
cultivation) took refuge on Ganghwado Island and began to cultivate ginseng on a large scale, which was the beginning of the production
of the famous 6-year-old root of ginseng.
Ganghwado Island has the optimal environment for ginseng cultivation with clay soil, sandy loam, and a cool climate condition influenced by onshore winds. The thick root of a Ganghwa ginseng does not have any inside cavity or white interior. This is how Ganghwa became a leading producer of the 6-year-old root, which has a high rate of red ginseng extract, cheonji.
Ganghwa Ginseng Center handles quality ginseng guaranteed in its cultivation, processing, and distribution, owing to the utmost care exerted to provide safe and reliable products.
