|I planted some turmeric root that I bought at an Indian store early in the summer. It outgrew the planter so I just dug it up. The growing tips are very pale in color, then it gets darker closer to the center but overall is only light orange-yellow. It smells and tastes like turmeric but I think of turmeric as very strongly colored, are there varieties like this?

|Hi Beekaye, Welcome to All Things Plants!
I don't grow Turmeric and I don't know a thing about it but I see photos in our database of both pale and dark roots!
Turmeric (Curcuma longa)

|I shop at an Indian grocery store and they sell two types of fresh Turmeric; a 'normal' color orange-y one and another which is almost white.|
