Organic Black Cumin (Nigella Sativa) medicinal herb and as a culinary herb-500 seeds

Nigella sativa seed is variously called Black cumin, fennel flower, nutmeg flower, Roman coriander, blackseed, black caraway, or black onion seed. Other names used, sometimes misleadingly, are onion seed and black sesame, both of which are similar-looking but unrelated. The seeds are frequently referred to as black cumin (as in Bengali kalo jira), but this is also used for a different spice, Bunium persicum. The scientific name is a derivative of Latin niger “black”. In English-speaking countries with large immigrant populations, it is also variously known as kalonji, kezah Hebrew ???), chernushka (Russian), çörek otu (Turkish), habbat albarakah

How To Grow Black Cumin Herb Seeds: Start the Cumin seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before the last expected frost for transplanting outdoors. Or, after the last frost, directly plant the Black Cumin herb seeds outdoors. Some gardeners sow the Nigella Sativa seeds in several successive weeks in order to keep a longer season. Black Cumin plants need a sunny location in the herb garden and well-drained soil. Water the herb plants regularly during prolonged periods of dry weather. After the seed heads begin to dry, cut the stems, tie them together and place the seed heads in a brown paper bag. Hang the stems upside down in a warm well-ventilated place until the herb seeds are done drying. Place the seeds in an airtight container.
