Product Details

Water needs are minimal once established. With its tropical foliage and showy flowers, turmeric is a beautiful and useful addition to any garden.ZingiberaceaeZingiberaceaeOrange Turmeric (Curcuma longa) - ROOTS

This is for roughly half a pound of roots.

Curcuma longa, Turmeric, is a perennial herb within the zingiberaceae (ginger) family. With its tropical foliage and showy flowers, turmeric is a beautiful and useful addition to any garden. Its dark green leaves growing up to 3 feet long and 5 inches wide.

Turmeric is, however, traditionally grown for its rhizomes, which produce the powdered turmeric spice. Besides the roots, the leaves can be used as a wrap, similar to cabbage, banana or grape leaves.
Turmeric is an excellent addition to natural landscaping (with supervision as it can be invasive) and well suited to container gardening in most zones.

Turmeric will need the most water while it is actively growing, but not nearly as much before it sprouts. Unsprouted rhizome seeds are prone to rotting if they’re in standing water or overly-soggy soil. When planted directly outside, it can take many months for turmeric rhizomes to sprout and begin to grow. Therefore, choose a planting location that has good drainage or where you can easily control the moisture. Water needs are minimal once established.



  • Average mature height: 3'-4'
  • Light: Part to full shade, with morning and evening sun
  • Soil: Fertile, loamy, soil that is well draining.
  • Hardiness zones: 8-11 (in ground) 5-11(in containers)

*Shipping Plants: 
-Stress- Shipping can cause stress to a plant, mostly because it spends a few days in a dark stuffy box. Most plants survive with no problems or with a minimal stress (some leaf drop may occur), and recover quickly others may require extra love and attention with watering and gentle light after unboxing.
 
-Physical damage- Sometimes a carrier may damage boxes during handling.
It does not happen often as we try to pack your plants with extra special attention but unfortunately there are some things beyond our control.  In cases of serious damage, only the carrier can be responsible for it- so please contact the carrier within 30 days to start a claim. If it's just a broken branch or even part of a stem - just let it grow, take care of your plant and it will respond to your love. We understand your frustration if damage occurs, and strive to do everything we can on our end to minimize all damage and stress on the plant
