Black Cumin (Nigella sativa) is a small annual herb native to parts of Asia, but used in gardening all over the world. It produces attractive white or light blue flowers that develop into fruit capsules containing the highly valued Black Cumin seeds that have been the subject of much exciting scientific research. These seeds have a slightly bitter flavor and are commonly used in a variety of cuisines, adding a unique depth of flavor to dishes.

  • High-Yielding & Drought-Resistant - Black Cumin, or Nigella Sativa, is a annual herb that's easy to grow, even in poor soil conditions. Noted for its drought resistance, this plant typically reaches about a foot in height and features pretty sky blue flowers that transform into seed pods.
  • Culinary & Traditional Uses - Black Cumin seeds have a number of confusing names and are sometimes confused with onion or black sesame seed. They are widely used as a spice in Middle Eastern, Indian, and North African food for their unique pepper flavor. The seeds can top breads or be ground into a spice. When added to water, powdered nigella seeds form a gel that can bind food and used as an egg replacement.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are heirloom seeds?

Heirloom seeds are the types of seeds your grandparents grew. These varieties have been passed down from generation to generation. They’re old reliable open-pollinated varieties that aren’t typically grown commercially. Instead, they have a rich history that predates modern breeding techniques.

You can learn more about open-pollinated, heirloom, and non-GMO seeds in our Survival Garden Training blog.

Where are Survival Garden Seeds sourced?

The majority of our seeds are sourced in the United States, with a few exceptions when the seed is difficult to source domestically. Whenever we do have to source outside of the US, we ensure our seeds are safe to grow, non-GMO varieties that meet our standards for germination and reliability.

Are your seeds treated?

No, we do not pre-treat our farmer seeds. All of our garden seeds for sale are untreated, open-pollinated, non-GMO, and heirloom varieties. They are kept in temperature-controlled cooler storage until they are packed and shipped to keep them pest and disease-free.

In what zones can I grow your seeds?

The seeds in our collections are specifically chosen from varieties that can be successfully grown from Zone 3 to Zone 10 USDA Hardiness Zones. However, individual varieties have specific needs to thrive in different environments. Each seed pack has optimal temperatures for germination and instructions on seed starting. Consult local frost dates to plan your garden and get the most out of your seeds.

What is the shelf life of these gardening seeds?

Our seeds will generally last for 3-10 years if they are appropriately stored in a cool, dry place. However, we encourage you to grow your survival seeds within a year or two of purchase. This yields the best germination rates possible and also gives you more experience growing survival food now. At the end of the growing season, follow the instructions on the back of each packet for saving seeds for future gardens. These new seeds for survival will be more adapted to thrive in the growing conditions where you are.
