Where does turmeric come from?
Turmeric is grown in Thailand and Peru. It is a bushy, shrubby plant. The harvest starts around 9 months after planting. Harvesting is purely manual work, as spades and knives are used to extract the roots from the soil. The plants have long, broad leaves. These leaves protect and shade the crop from light so it can be cultivated sustainably, without the use of crop protection products.
