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.

Welcome @anni_cree! We have a few large Mexican market stores here, as well as some international markets. They seem to carry the freshly dug roots and depending on the season they can be very small to huge pieces.

I found some organic Turmeric at Smart & Final, but it never sprouted.
