The cultivation area of our turmeric in Peru is located between Pichanaki and Satipo. Jiahe Food has six hectares of its own cultivation of organic turmeric in these areas. Due to the long growth phase of about nine months, it can only be harvested once a year. The plants are left in the ground and harvested as needed. Just like ginger in Peru, they can remain in the ground for more than a year without the turmeric losing quality.
