Cumin is a pungent herb that is most commonly used in the cuisines of many different cultures. It is featured prominently in Mexican, Indian, and Middle Eastern cuisines. Cumin seeds, in both whole and ground form, are used as a spice for its distinctive flavor and aroma. The seeds add an earthy and warming feeling to foods with its nutty and peppery flavor. Cumin is the key ingredient in curry powder and is also used in stews, soups, rice, and breads. Cumin is a drought-tolerant, tropical, or subtropical crop. It requires a long, hot summer of three to four months to grow. We highly recommend growing cumin because the spice is widely available, but the seeds are not.
