Ginseng root is a consumable item in Fallout 76.


A dark brown root harvested from a ginseng plant. It can be consumed raw to satisfy a small amount of hunger with a medium dose of radiation and chance for disease or can be cooked for additional benefits.

Blast zone

When affected by a blast zone, it will turn into nuka root, which will yield raw violet flux when harvested.
