Looking for a plant or even some of the black tumeric root, if you have other varieties as well please let me know!

check with forum member Lebmung. I got a nice piece from him, and from another person on Etsy. Both are growing well now.

Hi Jabba

I recommend finding a Middle Eastern Indian market for the white turmeric and save your kitchen from turning yellow hehehe

Happy Gardening !

Thanks for the recommendations! I found a market who sells white but of course they were out.

Actually, it is a great trade offer. I paid more than the cost of a box o mangoes.

True black turmeric is somewhat difficult to find, and usually not cheap. Same with kasturi/cosmetic.
