Black Seed Around the World

HTML Online Editor Sample

There is lot of confusion about the names of Black Seed (Nigella Sativa) which is primarily due to different countries and regions where it is used and grown. In English it is commonly referred to as Black Cumin or Black Caraway, although it has no relation to the common Cumin or Caraway that is used as a spice in cooking. That is why the popular name "Black Seed" best describes this herb and this name has been associated with Nigella Sativa for the last 30 years in the United States, Middle East and Europe.

Gernot Katzer culinary spice expert and former researcher at the University of Graz, Austria, has compiled an extensive list of the different names of this remarkable herb and spice in 63 languages. Its interesting as he notes that nearly all names of Black Seed contain an element meaning black in reference to the unusually dark colour of the seeds and have a second part that means cumin, caraway or simply grain.
