The James Wong Collection - These edible and aromatic seeds are used as a spice in Indian and middle eastern cuisine and can be used like black pepper when cooking. Attractive blooms which flower freely and flowers develop a balloon-like seed pod full of seeds. Black Cumin has been grown for over 1,000 years.

Black cumin is a delicate looking and oriental spice, with soft, feathered foliage. It is an annual but readily self-seeds each year. This charming plant is widely grown for its black seeds to be used in cooking.

Black Cumin seeds are similar to fennel in smell but have a peppery warm taste that is very close to nutmeg. If you are growing for flavour, Black Cumin packs a lot of flavour into its tiny seeds. Black Cumin is also known as Black Caraway, Roman Coriander and Blackseed.
