Details

Nigella sativa is a small Mediterranean plant cultivated for its deliciously aromatic black seeds, also called "Black Cumin" (but is not Cumin).
Its early summer flowering is not very interesting, with small, greenish flowers slightly bluish.

CAUTION: Do not confuse Nigella sativa with its ornamental cousin Nigella damascena, with pretty white, blue or pink flowers but whose seeds are not edible!

Black Cumin's seeds are used as a spice (arab breads, curry, spice mixes), as a source of essential oil, as a repellent against insects (moths), and as a remedy with the following medicinal properties : Anthelmintic, Carminative, Diaphoretic, Digestive, Diuretic, Emmenagogue, Galactagogue, Parasiticide, and Stimulant.

Easy to grow in any garden for producing this oriental spice, Nigella sativa loves heat and full sun.
Sow Black Cumin seeds directly in place at the end of May.
Any type of soil.
Weed the seedling so that your Nigellas do not suffocate before they grow.

Nigella sativa seeds are harvested in late summer, when the fruits are ripe and begin to open.
