12/06/2018:  First harvest of the season for BKK Turmeric!

 

The dark orange rhizomes of this variety are smaller than Hawaiian Red.  Their smaller size is more than made up for by their high level of curcumins, about 10%.  The flavor is strong and peppery.

We recently had the pleasure of a visit from The University of Florida.  The group included Sofia Flores Vivar, who is doing research on growing Ginger and Turmeric for her Masters degree, and advisors Dr. Paul Fisher and Dr. Brian Pearson.  We were happy to donate propagation material for her research and look forward to the results of her work!
