Cumin is one of the most widely used spices in the world, it is a pungent herb that is most commonly used to spice Asian, Indian, and Middle Eastern foods. Its strong flavour balances well with other aromatic spices, and it is central to an incredibly wide range of spice mixes and marinades. Cumin will produce a wide, robust umbel of tiny white flowers, followed by the unmistakable seeds.
While in bloom, cumin joins its cousins cilantro, caraway, and dill as highly prized food sources for a host of beneficial insects. Cumin can even be planted for this single purpose, and it will attract ladybird beetles, lacewings, hover flies, and a wide range of predatory wasps.
