- Dried seeds have spicy aroma.
- Bred for seed production but leaves can also be used. Use for authentic curries and oriental dishes.
Sow & Grow: Outdoors: sow thinly, March-June, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared, warm, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Thin seedlings to 20cm (8") apart. Water well until plants are established. For a continuous supply, make sowings at two to three week intervals. Leaves can be harvested, but this will decrease seed crop. Can also be sown and grown on a light windowsill, but for leaf only - seeds will not ripen indoors. Harvest: June-October. Pick the seed heads when they turn light brown. They have a pleasant, spicy aroma when ready for harvesting. After drying, shake out the seeds and store in an airtight container.
