This is a very rare form of turmeric that comes from Northern and Eastern India. Very much in demand it is being over harvested and is also the subject of extensive Bio-Piracy in the pharmaceutical industry.
Black Turmeric is not used as as a spice or flavouring, but rather as a medicinal herb. It tastes strongly of pine and turpentine and leaves a bitter aftertaste in your mouth.
It is used to treat a variety of ailments in eastern medicine.
QTY: One crown only
The crowns will give you a larger initial harvest and if grown in good conditions will probably give you a respectable harvest in the first year.
NOTE: Due to the very limited amount of root availability, we are asking you to please only order either a single crown or finger so that we can spread the little we have as wide as possible.
We do have an additional planting of black turmeric and hope to triple our supply for next season.
