Definitely not seng. My first thought because of stem size and location of berries was maybe what was always described to me as Jack in the Pulpits but I'm not even sure about that. Those are some big leaves to be Jacks I think. I use to love digging seng and made a lot of money doing it but haven't been in quite a while.

Will is right. Indian turnip aka Jack in the Pulpit guess I had it right then second guessed myself!

There was a guy in Beech Grove that use to let me dig on his land in return I had to give him a few of the roots I dug. He would boil and then drink the water for energy. At least thats what he told me. I dug a "ginseng man" root there once and made a killing off of that 1 root alone. Heck of a payday!

I ate a piece of Indian turnip one night c.o.o.n hunting. The old man I was with thought it was hilarious. He dug it up and told me to try it. Said it was really good. That thing will light you up. I like a lot of things you can find in the woods like ripe persimmons and paw paws but no more Indian radish for this ol boy. My granny and a friend of ours use to make persimmon fried pies. They’ll make your tongue slap your brains out.
