I have grown turmeric back in Atlanta but did not get much tubers. It is a tropical plant. You have to let it get few year old to produce enough tubers. But to do that you have to have frost free climate like south Florida.
Anyway. I use turmeric just like chili powder and paprika.
The main ingredient in Indian Curry powder is actually turmeric.
It is called " Gold Of India " . No Indian will cook without turmeric and chili pepper. .

Happy Gardening !
