Growing and harvesting
Turmeric can be grown without protective agents. Once the plant is fully grown, the leaves are 40 centimetres long and 20 centimetres wide. As a result, weeds get no chance to grow under the sizeable foliage.
The turmeric plant is related to the ginger plant. To provide the shrubby crop with sufficient water during cultivation, the fields are equipped with irrigation systems. The harvest starts around 9 months after planting. Equipped with a shovel and a knife, employees get the roots above the ground.
The crates with turmeric root are further processed in the packing stations: cleaning, sorting according to quality and preparing for transport to Nature's Pride.
- Loose per package of 1, 2 or 13 kg
- Packed per 125 grams, per package of 8 x 125 grams
- Packed per 250 grams, per package of 8 x 250 grams
Turmeric can be found at Nature's Pride in the distinctive EAT ME packaging. We can, of course, help you to market turmeric under a private label.
