Fresh ginger has been grown in Jersey for the first time

Woodside Farms in Trinity carried out a successful trial last year resulting in 1.5 tonnes of fresh ginger being produced. This year it is looking to produce 20-25 tonnes of root ginger.

Woodside worked closely with Waitrose to produce the new crop. The farm trialled a number of crops last year including chard, red sprouts, kalettes (developed by crossing kale and the brussels sprout), beetroot and ginger with the beetroot and ginger being progressed on a larger scale.

Sales of ginger have shot up as the trend for fresh juices and smoothies continues.
