What is the Ginger?

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a flowering plant whose rhizome, ginger root, or ginger, is widely used as a spice. It is a herbaceous perennial which grows annual pseudostems (false stems made of the rolled bases of leaves) about one meter tall bearing narrow leaf blades. The inflorescences bear flowers having pale yellow petals with purple edges, and arise directly from the rhizome on separate shoots. The homeland of Ginger (”Zanjabil ” in Arabic), this particularly useful herbal plant, is North India, Jammu, and Kashmir.
