Product Details

Turmeric is a perennial herb that is known for its distinctive yellow color and its robust flavor. Turmeric is the main ingredient in curry. It looks like saffron and can be used as a substitute for that spice.

Turmeric loves heat and humidity and is hardy in the ground in USDA zones 8-11. When growing turmeric, keep the soul moist and give the plant morning sun and afternoon filtered shade. It grows easily in the climate of the southern US and it can be grown in containers outside of that region. The plant root can be harvested, cut for use, with the remainder replanted for next year’s harvest.
