Cumin seeds (Nigella sativa) are small and crescent-shaped seeds that have been used for centuries in traditional medicine and cuisine. They have a unique, pungent flavor and are often used in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine. They are also known for their medicinal properties, including anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
To grow cumin seeds, you will need:
Black cumin seed
Sow the seeds in the spring after the last frost date, spacing them about 6 inches apart.
Water the cumin regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
Fertilize the cumin with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.
Keep the cumin free of weeds and remove any diseased or damaged leaves to help prevent disease.
Harvest the cumin seeds when they are fully mature and have reached their mature size.
Sow seeds or transplant seedlings
Water regularly, keep the soil consistently moist
Fertilize every 4-6 weeks with a balanced fertilizer
Keep plants free of weeds and remove any diseased or damaged leaves
Harvest cumin seeds when they are fully mature and have reached their mature size
It's worth noting that cumin is an annual herb, which means that the plant will grow and produce seeds in one growing season, and then it will die. Therefore you need to plant the seed again each year if you want to have continuous production.
