Zedoary Root (Curcuma zedoaria Roscoe) is a popular spice and medicine in the Eastern world, used similarly to its cousin turmeric in condiments and curries.
It is a rhizome ( like its cousin Turmeric) a like wet forest regions in the tropics. It is a fragrant plant and has brigh yellow flowers with red and green bractss and the underground stem section is large and tuberous with many branches. the eaves can reach 3 feet in length.
It is also known as White Turmeric or Kentjur
The white root or rhizome is edible and has a fruity smell a bit like mango or perhaps guava but its taste is bitter and similar to ginger and leaves an aftertaste.
In Thailand it is shredded and used with other vegetables and the fresh rhizome is used in pickles in India whilst the dried product, powdered or cut, is used in curry pastes.
