Blue Turmeric - Medicinal Curcuma aeruginosa Fresh

Regular price $19.95

'Blue' Turmeric is a medicinal root native to Southeast Asia. Shown to have medicinal properties and antimicrobial.

The fresh rhizome has a blue colored halo/circle when cut open fresh. It is often circulated as "black turmeric" which is similar looking. However, the true "black" turmeric is Curcuma caesia  and has a blue color that spreads evenly when cut where aeruginosa has a blue ring halo.

 The plant itself grows to a couple feet tall with attractive dark green leaves and a black/maroon striped midrib. It has a reddish/purple flower that blooms in late summer to early fall.  It is a perennial herb that goes dormant in winter months.  It can grow in full sun to partial shade.
