I know this is an old post, but I'm curious to know the answer to this question as well. I have tons of sarsaparilla, the Aralia nudicaulis variety, on my 20 acres of land in Maine.
I'm planning on digging up a bunch of it and thought it'd be a shame to just let it rot in a compost pile. Does anyone know,if there's a market for this species of wild sarsaparilla, either roots or seeds?
Hello moosedsl, and wildewudu,
Hope you see this. I am a root and herb buyer. Yes, I buy Wild Sarsaparilla (Aralia nudicaulis), more accurately called False Sarsaparilla. I also buy several species of another wild sarsaparilla, a vine more often called Greenbrier (Smilax glauca, etc.). I buy the whole plants (roots plus aerial parts) of all of these. I buy about 200 other roots and herbs as well, both popular ones, and ones almost no one has heard of. I pay well and on time. I'm looking for a reliable supplier, who wants to supplement his income in a stable ongoing way. If this is you, please get in touch.
Yours, Pa Bro
