Its yellow-white flowers grow on a spike-like stalk and have small, brown seeds. Turmeric only reproduces via its underground stem (rhizome) which is thick and ringed with the bases of old leaves. Dried turmeric is made by peeling, boiling, and drying the rhizomes, which are then sold whole or ground.
