Turmeric Bulbs

1 Bulb/pack

Turmeric (Curcuma Longa)is the main ingredient in most Indian curry powders. It sometimes goes by the name of Indian saffron but is actually not related to saffron at all.

Turmeric is different from most herbs in that you are not going to be harvesting the leaves, but the roots instead. The plant grows an underground tuber, or rhizome much like ginger does. It can take up to 10 months for a new crop of roots to develop, and itís not a plant that you can harvest in small pieces through the season.

Turmeric is closely related to ginger, and has a similar strong taste.

Aside from its power as a seasoning, there is growing evidence of the health benefits from the Turmeric herb. Itís high in anti-oxidants and may have anti-inflammatory or even anti-caner properties.
