Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), AKA Indian Ginseng, is a member of the Solanaceae family. Ashwagandha, known as the ginseng of Ayurvedic medicine, is an ancient medicinal herb with multiple health benefits. Ayurveda is a traditional alternative medicine based on Indian principles of natural healing. People have used ashwagandha for thousands of years, and it has over 4,000 years of traditional use in its native India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. A short shrub, growing from 15-30 inches tall, has yellow flowers and bears fruit found in husks, similar to a Chinese lantern, a ground cherry. Ashwagandha is native to hot and arid climates but does well in North American gardens if started early indoors. Germination usually takes a few weeks.

Leaves can be used in teas; Ashwagandha Roots can be harvested in the fall of the first or second year and can be used fresh or dried for tinctures or teas. Ashwagandha berries provide an alternative source for rennet, which is essential to home cheese making.
