Just finished juicing my second order. So sad the Johnsons' stock is running out because the quality, care and delivery surpasses any others that I've dealt with.... [more]

Can't recommend enough. The baby ginger is just beautiful, smells and tastes wonderful. Care and thought was used in shipping the package to me. Package arrived on time and in excellent condition. Wonderful folks to do business with.

The Johnsons' ginger has the energy of "love" stamped all over it. It's beautiful. The taste is warming, mildly hot and delicious. Juiced with apple cider and you've got the perfect health soft drink for the whole family. This rates more than five(5) stars.
