Description Basic aspects of yield and production of ornamental horticulture are unknown in Tabasco, Mexico. Therefore, this study aim to evaluate the production of Red and Pink Ginger (Alpinia purpurata) flowers in the municipalities of Comalcalco, Centro and Teapa, Tabasco. The production was evaluated in six clumps per variety and per planting on each municipality. Quantitative production traits for flowers, commercial stems and clumps were assessed every two weeks for one year. Comalcalco had the highest production of Red and Pink Ginger stems and flowers per clump with 48.2 Red and 24.7 Pink commercial flowers. Both varieties concentrated about 23% of the commercial flower production in May. In Centro, Red and Pink Ginger commercial flowers were 11.9 and 12.5 per clump with 42.0% and 34.7% concentrated in May. In Teapa, the production of Red Ginger commercial flowers was 10.6 per clump per year with 34.8% of the production recorded in June.
