Curcuma longa is a sterile triploid organism that has evolved through natural selection and propagation. A relative of ginger and sharing similar growing conditions, it is a hybrid of the wild turmeric found in Southern Asia, with India being the predominant producer of growing turmeric plants for trade. Turmeric can also be found in China (where it has been cultivated since the seventh century), Jamaica, Indonesia and Malaysia.

Nowadays we can buy them from flower markets, or florists as tall, beautiful plants with stunning flowers. Almost each year I buy them, they die down leaving me behind with the photos. These were bought from a recent flower market…
Happy Monday 🙂
