Curcuma longa
Member $8.50

An Indian spice that will grow in any frost free area in Australia (and even in areas where frost is very light). Canna-like leaves emerge from the rhizome during spring (year round in the tropics). Tubers are mild when dug during the growing season, stronger when dug after the leaves have died down in the autumn. A very productive plant, producing a bucketful of harvestable roots from one rhizome in a single growing season.
