Land of Green Ginger The name "Green Ginger" is derived from the name of a street in Hull called "The Land of Green Ginger". One theory for the origin of the street name is that it was the site of a factory which cured imported ginger with lemon juice. The combination of the two produced a better product, green ginger. In a similar way Green Ginger Software combines consultancy in Java, web and relational database technology to provide a complete solution.
