Fresh Turmeric Season is over!! Our supply is sold out. Our new crop is growing nicely and should be available in November. Turmeric or 'olena (Hawaiian) is the most recent addition to the certified organic root crops raised by Pinner Creek Organics. This root is used as an ingredient in many mixed spice assortments found in most supermarkets. It is also used as an orange dye. Fresh Turmeric can be found in most health food stores. Hawaiian Red Turmeric is by far the best tasting turmeric and is normally higher in Curcumin content compared to the bitter tasting yellow Ayurvedic Turmeric found in most health food stores. Our Turmeric is currently being used in many cancer treatment trials because of its legendary anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric curcumin has numerous health benefits, including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Our fabulous 2018-2019 crop of fresh Hawaiian Red Turmeric is SOLD OUT! Our new crop is growing nicely and should be available in late October or early November.

We do currently have some very nice Red Turmeric Powder in stock which is an industry wide leader in taste aroma, Total Curcuminoid content and sports a unique vibrant reddish –orange color. See and taste to appreciate. I have yet to see any that comes close to this quality.

While many out there claim to have Hawaiian Red Turmeric, we feel our cultivar is superior in taste, aroma, and reddish hue. And it is grown in some deep mineral rich Mother Earth, not plastic!

Our Turmeric is currently being used in many cancer treatment trials because of its legendary anti-inflammatory properties. Many of our customers have been using our products to treat serious conditions effecting family, friends, and pets for years. Someday we will get their stories published!

Black Turmeric is the new kid on the block in the world of Turmeric. Curcuma caesia is a rare and endangered species of Turmeric according to some Indian sources. Some say it is the highest in Curcumin content of all the Turmerics but we have not found this to be true to date. More testing will be done.

Most agree it is very good as an aid for any respiratory ailments and can be made into a poultice for application to the chest or any sore joints.

Here are some pictures of Black Turmeric used to make sushi, shots, and other fine foods. Please stop by and visit the fine people who run Plant Based Deli, which is located within the Vim n Vigor health food store in Ala Moana center, Honolulu, Hawaii.
