Currently, most resveratrol raw material is wild crafted, and a small amount is currently farmed. Under normal conditions it harvests all year long, but considering the growing season and weather, September through October is considered to be the best time of year to harvest. To ensure a constant and reliable supply of material, buyers should look to purchase from manufactures who will harvest from both wild crafted and farmed raw material. Dongming Growth has a well-balanced supply from both wild cultivated and their wholly owned farm of raw polygonum cuspidatum.
