It probably reached China by 700 AD, East Africa by 800 AD, West Africa by 1200 AD, and Jamaica in the eighteenth century. In 1280, Marco Polo described this spice, marvelling at a vegetable that exhibited qualities so similar to that of saffron. According to Sanskrit, Ayurvedic and Unani treaties, turmeric has a long history of medicinal use in South Asia. Today, turmeric is widely cultivated in the tropics and goes by different names in different countries.
