Ginger is a distorted, multi branched root found in many different shapes and sizes. The skin ranges in color from light to dark tan and is semi-rough with occasional callouses and ring ridges along the surface. The thickness of the skin is directly related to whether the root was picked early or mature. Underneath the skin, the flesh is firm, fibrous, and ranges in color from yellow to brown. When fresh, Ginger is juicy and crunchy with a pungent, spicy, and slightly sweet taste.
