Gimpo Ginseng boasting the best medical effect

Gimpo ginseng is famous for its unparalleled medical effects. The ginseng produced in Gimpo is mostly six years old and is consumed in a variety of ways such as fresh ginseng or ginseng-based processed goods. The ginseng is clean and high-quality, grown on Baeknyeongdo Island of Ongjin-gun and on the north of Mintongseon in Paju that is non-accessible to civilians. It eclipses the ginseng grown in other areas in quality and aroma, with internationally renowned medical effects.
