Ginger is the rhizome of Zingiber officinale Rose., a herbaceous perennial belonging to Zingiberacea, and is believed to be native of south-eastern Asia. It is propagated through rhizomes. The rhizomes put forth erect, leafy stems, 30-90 cm in height. The base of the leaves sheathe the stem. The leaves are light-green, 15-20 cm long, narrow, lanceolate and with a prominent midrib.
