The Miracle Spice

For years Turmeric has been cultivated as a food dye to give items like mustard their bright yellow hue, but it’s also been used in a variety of Indian dishes like curry to give it it’s signature yellow color and spicy zing.  For this reason Turmeric is often referred to as ‘Indian Curry’.

Turmeric has a sweet smell similar to lemon and ginger with a flavor that’s earthy and warm, followed by a peppery zest. It’s perfect for pairing with meats and adding into stir-fries. You can even wrap meats in the leaves and bake them for an even more unique flavor.

Best of all a little Turmeric spice is filled with tons of amazing health benefits. It’s filled with vitamins and nutrients like iron, potassium, manganese, A vitamins and B vitamins for energy and healthy skin. The nutrients also help boost the immune system.

The active ingredient, Curcumin in Turmeric is a powerful antioxidant that helps prevent wrinkles, lowers cholesterol and relieves pain. Add a dash of Turmeric to your meals or brew some in a cup of tea to relieve pains related to headaches and arthritis.

By growing Turmeric you’ll be growing a delicious spice, as well as your own all-natural, healthy and organic source of nutrients. As an added bonus Turmeric plants have a stunning tropical look, with large, lush green leaves. 

Your garden will be provided with a tropical accent, along with exotic beauty in the summer when large white flowers blossom.  The flowers pop against the Turmeric’s dark green leaves for a dazzling display of floral color.

The bright flowers capture the attention of spectators and serve as a reminder, that soon in the fall you will have savory Turmeric roots to harvest and enjoy.

You don’t need to live in a tropical area to grow Turmeric because it thrives in containers, both indoors and out. Bring your potted turmeric indoors for the winter and place it by a bright sunny window. When it warms up again place it outdoors for a beautiful deck, pool, or patio accent.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Turmeric Plant

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Turmeric Plant.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Turmeric Plant gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Turmeric Plant again after the transplant is complete.

I had ordered turmeric bulbs from another vendor and they failed to grow. I wanted turmeric and was delighted to find it on FastGrowingTrees. Their plants are superb!
Janyth P on Sep 13, 2016
Because I am of Indian descent and last night i couldn't find pure turmeric to purchase, so i figured I might as well buy the plant and grow it myself! Fingers crossed

Turmeric has so many medicinal properties and can be used in a variety of meals. I would prefer to grow my own since I don't know how good the spice is in the store.

Turmeric is a SUPER food. I want to be able to always have it on hand. It goes very well on chicken and potatoes.

I used tumeric powder in my smoothies and I tried to find a tumeric plant here in Abilene but couldn't so I purchased this on to use in food,. I am really interested in growing more medicinal plants and plants for food consumption

I had been taking Turmeric supplements and I just want to have the live plant and have it propagated, if possible. I know the anti-inflammatory qualities of Turmeric. My wife and I have experience relief first-hand.

when to turmeric ?
Bill B on Aug 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you are asking when to harvest your turmeric.. Well, you will be receiving a root, not a actual plant. My root has begun to grow but no where nearing harvest time. I would say about a year to harvest.
Will tumeric continue to grow year after year or do you need to purchase a new plant every year?
Millie L on Oct 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No you don't have to purchase a new plant. When you harvest the rhizomes take what you want to use and plant back pieces with 2 or 3 buds and plant them in nutrient rich organic well drained soil. Plant them in watered soil about 2 inches down with the buds facing up. Should sprout in about a month but don't over water or let it dry out
