Useful Plants At The Farm- Curcuma Mangga

Curcuma mangga is also known as white turmeric.  It tastes like a mango, hence the name 'mangga'.

The rhizome with skin and without.













Researchers have found anti-tumour activities from extracts of the rhizomes.  On a personal basis, we have found it to have strong anti-inflammatory effect and we have incorporated it into our diet on a regular basis, either as a ulam or salad, or as a drink.

The plant can reach about 5 feet high.

At the farm, we gather the soil around the roots and rhizome and make a foliar spray to combat fungal  infections on plants.


Take one part soil, one part molasses, and 4 parts water and aerate vigorously for 10  hours. 



Use twice a week on plants with signs of fungal attacks.

For growing or for consumption? Ours is grown for over a year for max nutrients, and also grown only on compost without synthetic stuff. It would be excellent as an anti-inflammation adjunct to your diet.
For growing - we are not a nursery and do not sell, but I can give you some sprouted rhizomes to grow, if you have the patience to wait for a year or so.

I've never tasted fresh Curcuma mangga or any other kind of turmeric. I did use it in powder form, for cooking, I learned about its therapeutic properties from an ayurvedic cooking manual. I'd love to try it fresh, where can I find some?

I always delete commercial spams. But since the author of the preceding post have tried to stay on topic, I shall let it pass this time. More from this same author will be deleted.

I'd definitely love to try Curcuma Mangga - I have a friend who uses it in a chutney. He also said it tastes very good pickled with mustard seeds, green chilies, and fenugreek seeds. However, I have yet to find anywhere good to buy it in the States. Any suggestions?

I know of DQ for many years as I always hope in Country Farms and Ecogreen, TTDI. This is the first time I visited your blog by chance and read with interest your write up about the kunyit hitam. I have been searching a long time for it as I collect many species of ginger, kunyit, temu, kantan for my garden. A few months ago I got the temu hitam which initially I thought was the kunyit hitam but after reading your blog I realised its the temu.

Anyway, I don't suppose you would reveal where you get your completely black kunyit as I don't think you found it in the wild? :P I am getting help from a Malay lady to help source for me.
