Tongkat Ali @ Eurycoma
I am one of the tongkat ali planters in Malaysia. I would like to share my experience regarding this plant species. I already plat this tongkat ali also know an eurycoma longifolia for 10 years. At first, my objectives was to make it as a hobby..but now I already plant almost 100 trees of tongkat ali.
The left picture was taken from my plantation in Bongawan Sabah. The age of this tongkat ali was 3 years old. According to literature, at this age you already can harvest the roots for medicinal purposes. But for me, I am willing to wait 2 year more. The current market price of this roots was said to be around rm50/kg green basis. As this tongkat ali was not a commodity yet..so the price differs from place to places.
More information regarding tongkat ali have been publish in the web, all of this information also suggest to me...There is a huge potentials in this plants.
