I found a good picture for ginseng I wanted to post. Ginseng is a fun thing to hunt and it is usually rare to find. If you find certain roots that look like a person known as something called an "emperor root" you could potentially make thousands of dollars. What makes it so rare is how long it takes for the root to grow. It can take years and the plant is very hard to farm. It likes shady areas around rivers. It is known to show its berries around August. There is a hunting season for it because of its demand and rarity.
