West Virginia's ginseng season starts Thursday and runs through Nov. 30. The state Department of Commerce says that by law, only ginseng plants with three or more prongs are old enough to harvest.

The number of prongs indicates the plant's age.

Sangers have until March 31 to sell the roots to a registered ginseng dealer in the state.

Ginseng must be certified before leaving the state. Only registered dealers can obtain proper certification to transport ginseng across state lines.
