TURMERIC ORANGE

TurmericBotanical Name: Curcuma longa
Description

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 orange 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.

It dies back in winter so be careful to remember where it is! It's heartbreaking to think you're shoving your spade into an empty patch but come out with half an orange rhizome!!!!


They really really like water. I have them in a spot that gets a lot of the runnoff from our roof and they are big and lush.


Summer 2012: Beautiful flowers coming out on the larger clumps. So so pretty. Very very tropical feeling.

Pest Control: The leaves seem to get attacked by something (you can see a few holes in the pic) but it doesn't defoliate them and the doesn't seem to worry the plants so I don't worry about pesst contol.

Turmeric Orange (Cutting) 8/10

Amethyst's Edible Fruits
Update: 1150 days 2hrs

Comments: - 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 bulked up. From two pieces we ended up with over 1 kilogram of root in a single season.
