In India, fresh ginger is a main spice used when making pulse and lentil curries. Other than cullinary uses, ginger is also known to cure nausea and cold remedies. Note: Though we ship out freshest produce from our warehouse, there is risk of vegetables going bad in hot delivery trucks between months of May and September. We are shipping from NYC. There is no guarantee of freshness between these months and no refunds will be issued. Fresh vegetables will be shipped out only on Mondays and Tuesdays to avoid sitting in hot trucks over weekends. Please purchase with discretion.
