HEIRLOOM Friends, this is one of our favorite plants of all time. Its fine, lime green tufts of feathery, fern-like foliage are only a foot tall, a foot wide and are quickly covered in exquisitely subtle baby blue blossoms. Each gorgous seedhead is borne on a long, strong stem perfect for cutting and, as the seeds mature, for shaking the seeds out on a dish with dramatic flourish.

Organic Black Cumin (Nigella) HEIRLOOM Friends, this is one of our favorite plants of all time. Its fine, lime green tufts of feathery, fern-like foliage are only a foot tall, a foot wide and are quickly covered in exquisitely subtle baby blue blossoms. Each gorgous seedhead is borne on a long, strong stem perfect for cutting and, as the seeds mature, for shaking the seeds out on a dish with dramatic flourish. Black Cumin seeds are a Mid-East and Indian delicacy. (In India they are called kalonji.) Black Cumin's flavor is reminscent of toasted onion flake, black pepper and oregano. It is most commonly toasted for curries, breads and steamed rice. We often toss 20 seeds or so in a pot of rice and savor the exquisite flavor and heavenly aroma it imparts.

Easy to grow, easy to harvest and a pleasure to cook with, our original Black Cumin seed is from Brian and Chrystine of Uprising Seeds, an endless source of diversity and inspiration.

Easy, attractive, reliable November 28, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Geneseo, NY United States  
Planted black cumin at the edges of my veg garden, and the plants popped up easily, grew without a fuss. Left the seed heads on and look forward to seeing where they turn up next year.

Reviewer: Elke Donofrio from River Vale, NJ United States  
I wish I had planted more of these.  Harvesting the seed is a bit of a pain but the plants produced a good amount of seed heads.
