Comment/Acknowledgements: Zingiber officinale, the root ginger of commerce, is cultivated in the Hazara region m Haripur and Tret. Also cultivated in the Sind and Punjab Plains. It is always propagated by rhizomes. The rhizomes are dug up while the plant is in the vegetative state and thus it rarely flowers.
