(Cucurma caesia)

Black Turmeric, called Kali haldi in India , is an exotic variety native to India and southeast Asia. Flowers are pink or maroon but the leaf is also attractive with a maroon streak in the midrib. The rhizomes start out as a light pink and turn blue during maturity.

The scent of the root is camphor-like and reminds me of rocket fuel. Black Turmeric is Intensely bitter, making the root more suitable for medicinal purposes than cookery. It is employed traditionally in the treatment of cancer, pneumonia, and epilepsy.In Northern Thailand a root kept in your pocket makes you smell nice and is believed to make you more attractive..
