Black cumin can refer to the seeds of either of two quite different plants, both of which are used as spices: 1. Bunium persicum, similar to caraway in shape 2. Nigella sativa, also called kalonji or nigella. More common in the West.

There is considerable confusion about this spice, particularly in the older literature. It is sometimes (falsely) referred to under names as Carum bulbocastanum or Cuminum nigrum. Until recently, there was only very little scientific data on this spice.

Black cumin fruits (often called seeds), Fruits. Both the dark brown colour and the slender crescent shape are character istic. In Kashmir, the root is eaten as a vegetable.
