Turmeric is an easy plant to grow in warm regions. The plants cannot withstand freezing temps and are best suited for dry tropical regions. The plants are much like ginger in habit and growth with broader leaves. The rhizomes are more "bunched" in morphology compared to regular ginger. They can be grown from pieces of the rhizome relatively easily. Our plants are the active growing rhizome with all the foliage cut away for shipment.
