Fresh ginger is the root in its fleshy round state. It's really a rhizome
and not a root. Store ginger was used to distinquish between ornamental
(nursery bought) ginger and culinary ginger. Ginger also comes in dried
form and that's the kind that is powdered or crytalized (candied) I have
seen ginger in dried root form that you grate yourself. You also run into
what is call green ginger which is the very young very new ginger before it
develops it's woody and fibrous core. This make very good candied ginger.
