Grow Your Own Turmeric from the Grocery Store

By Bubbles

If you've ever eaten East Indian food, you've probably tasted turmeric, the bright yellow, pungent spice. It's usually found in powdered form, but it can also be eaten freshly sliced from the root. Would you believe that you can grow it yourself from tubers that are found in most international markets? If that doesn't catch your attention, you can also grow these same tubers/rhizomes into lovely blooming gingers for your summer garden before you harvest the roots in fall for turmeric.

Thank you so much for posting! Turmeric is a great anti inflammatory. It takes awhile to build up in your system - about six weeks - but those of you dealing with chronic pain it is definitely worth a try. It also has anti cancer properties and I dont think there is any side effects unlike many of the pain medications from the pharmacy. Thank you so much for sharing this information! I will be trying for sure!
