The green leaves grow in an alternate pattern and develop from the sheaths surrounding the thick green stem. The leaves and stem are connected to a soft, fragrant, and crunchy root, and each root is about two centimeters in length and has thin skin that is pink and milky-white in color. Ginger leaves are tender, crisp, and have a less pungent ginger flavor that is mildly peppery and sweet.
