Infuses curry with peppery flavor and ultra-vivid yellow-orange color.
Flowering ginger relative’s bulbous roots lend curry earthy, peppery flavor and ultra-vivid yellow-orange color. Fresh turmeric, grated or minced, offers flavor—lighter, brighter, and kickier by far—than the dried herb. A favored condiment in Asia, turmeric infuses curries, marinades, rice dishes, and smoothies with ting tang walla walla bing bang. (Top tip: be sure to wear gloves when grating bulb). Ornamental tropical perennial’s heavily-branching 3' plants produce large, lovely large green and white three-petaled corollas amid the lance-shaped leaves: stunning in your garden or as cut flowers. Turmeric thrives in hot, humid climates, preferring full sun or light shade. In areas with cooler summers, plant in full sun.

TenaciousI planted my tumeric a couple months ago and it is doing well. The only thing is, I thought I planted ot where it would get afternoon shade, but I missed the area by a couple feet. NeXT year I will plant the roots a little further over, I think it will do even better. I can't rate the flavor yet as I haven't harvested it, which is why I rated this product as a 4.
