Curcuma longa fullscreen
The thick, cylindrical rhizome or underground stem of a tropical plant belongs to the ginger family. Finely grated it adds many health benefits and a brilliant colour and earthy flavour to foods such as Indian curries, rice and vegetarian dishes. Fresh Turmeric is lightly aromatic and slightly peppery, the flavour is pungent and bitter. Turmeric is a primary ingredient of Curry Powder. Used heavily in Indian Cuisine such as legumes, beans, and vegetable dishes. That wonderful ballpark mustard also contains turmeric as a colouring. To make yellow rice, use one teaspoon to colour one cup of raw rice. In the garden, the luscious leafy plant produces a spectacular flower that will stop you in your tracks, making a great ornamental feature in a subtropical garden. The foliage will die back in the winter indicating it is ready for harvest.

Turmeric is so darn easy to grow! Best in a pot as the plants in my garden were never happy and dwindled to nothing. Give it regular water and enjoy the lush foliage and waxy cream flowers. Harvest in autumn and you'll be amazed at how much it has bulk...

Stuck some rhizomes in the ground and they grew a few days later. I now have heaps of turmeric plants and they are so easy to grow. Keep them in the shade during hot sunny days.

I am using Turmeric for my rhinitis and is working very well. But we must make sure to get the pure product; because some people are selling Turmeric mixed with other products that may cause us to be sick.
