Where do you live that you grow ginger?

What I know is that ginger can vary in the marketplace.
 From my paper on candying ginger,
"Harold McGee in On Food and Cooking notes that much of the US market  
fresh ginger now comes from Hawaii where the harvest runs from  
December to June. So, believe it or not April through June is prime  
ginger season and a suitable time for candying ginger for spring  

I find that quality and price differ from market to market.
