I bought mine as a plant from a local herb farm. I did not want to call her to ask because I always end up in 2 hour conversations when I do I went to her Facebook page to find a post she had done and she had it listed as Curcuma Longa, Zingiberaceae.

If you have a grocery store that sells organic turmeric tubers you can just use that. Try to find one or two that have two or three eyes on them. It is not hard to grow but does take 7-10 months before you will get a harvest. It cannot survive a hard freeze but people in cold climates can dig up the rhizomes to store over winter.
