Curcuma caesia or black turmeric is a perennial bluish-black rhizome. It is more used for its medicinal properties (more details in the description below) than for cooking because of its very bitter taste.

Grow your own black turmeric from this root. It is a rare plant here in Australia and you will probably not find it easily.

Sizes

  • small rhizomes as seen on the 2nd picture. Probably not big enough for consumption. 
  • medium bulbs as seen on the 3rd picture. Big enough so that you can cut the sprout out for planting and consume the rest.

How to grow your turmeric from the rhizome

We select sprouting rhizomes before shipping them to you. To plant them make sure to follow the following recommendations.

  1. Warm sunny location. Find a nice and sunny location for your plant. But if like me you live in a place where summer mid-day sun is super hot, then it's best to plant your Black Turmeric at the edge of a roof or canopy. My own Black Turmeric plants are planted in root pouches (grow bags) so I can move it in and out accordingly if required
  2. Well draining potting mix is important, especially if you keep your rhizome in the container over the winter period to continue grow them on the next season. Failure to do so might lead to root rot due to excess moisture. The potting mix needs to be light, loamy and rich in organic matter. If planting directly in the ground, dig a hole of about 30cm diameter and 30cm depth and fill it with your potting mix.
  3. Mulch generously to prevent evaporation of the potting mix during hot seasons.
