growing and harvesting

Turmeric is a root from the Curcuma longa plant. The Curcuma longa plant is a member of the ginger family. The Curcuma longa is a bushy plant that covers the ground. The leaves are more than 40 cm long and 20 cm wide. Thus, making the growth of weeds very difficult and therefore, it isn't necessary to use herbicides. To obtain good quality, an irrigation system is required. 9 to 10 months after planting they can be harvested for the first time. A shovel and a knife is used to harvest the turmeric and they are put in crates. Then they are taken to the packhouse to be cleaned,graded and are prepared for transport to Nature's Pride.
