A good crop of tumeric (More vermillion) this year. Seems to like the extra rain we had.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a perennial plant of the ginger family. It is quite attractive during the year but dies off in winter ready to be harvested. I started my crop from a piece of root (rhizome) we bought in Byron Bay. I use it fresh in curries now but dried and ground up for the rest of the year.
