Cumin's warm gentle spice aroma and flavour is beloved of many cuisines from the Mediterranean and north Africa across to India and central America. It's drought tolerant once established, and tropical, needing lots of heat and sun. Seeds should be ready to harvest from around three months.

Cuminum cyminum - cumin

DESCRIPTION: Annual herb with fine feathery leaves, branching stems, white clusters of flowers - rather like a lacy rice flower - and edible seeds with a warming spice flavour.
PLANTING: Sow in late spring when temperatures reach 20C, through to early summer. Soaking in cold water before sowing may help germination. Cover with a thin layer of soil and keep moist until the tiny seedlings emerge. Needs continued hot sunny weather; too cold and leaves turn purple, too hot and seeds may ripen early.
CARE: Plant in fertile alkaline soil for best plant health. For best results water around the plants while seedlings are small, and apply liquid fertiliser
