Cumin Herb Seeds

Cumin is traditionally added to curries, Mexican & Moroccan dishes, among many others. Cumin seeds sprinkled on roasted vegetables is truly delicious. Try it with butternut squash, carrots or in lentil soups. Can be used whenever you want to add a little touch of the exotic to your dish!

Cumin will grow to a height of approximately 20" under ideal conditions, displaying white or pink flowers from midsummer onwards.

Cumin requires a considerable growing season, so for best results start indoors approximately 4 weeks prior to the last frost of the spring. Sow shallowly, approximately 1/4" beneath the surface of the soil. Keep moist and moderate water slightly once seeds start to germinate.

Common Questions

How do you grow Cumin herbs from seed? Cumin is a Mediterranean crop that thrives in hot weathers, the plant is not frost tolerant and needs a long hot summer to produce the best crops. Sow your Cumin seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before the last frost of the spring. Germination can take up to 14 days and can be helped by soaking your seeds for 8 hours before planting.

How do you transplant Cumin herbs in to soil? The best way to transplant your Cumin is to use biodegradable pots. Cumin does not transplant very well but you can use other methods for transplant by using soil blocks to help propagating your seeds before transferring out in to the garden.

Does Cumin need a full sun position? Cumin prefers growing in a full sun position and will reward you with a high yielding crop when it is time to harvest. Your soil should be mixed with some sand and be well-draining.
