What looks confusingly similar to black sesame seeds, but is completely different in taste? Guess again: our organic black cumin seeds! But what are they? The black seeds are a spice that originated in Western Asia. In countries like Turkey, Egypt and Iraq, black cumin is therefore used in many different traditional dishes. And also as a medicinal plant, some positive properties are attributed to the plant. For centuries, many peoples have relied on its healing properties for hair, skin and intestines, as well as its possible positive influence on health. Yet the plant is hardly a thing of the past! Thanks to its deliciously nutty and somewhat pungent aroma, black cumin is now celebrated as a real trendy spice! You too can spice up your kitchen - buy our organic black cumin seeds now!

Black cumin equals cumin - is that true?

Here, too, confusion can easily arise: Although the two plants have very similar names, that is where the similarities end. Black cumin is a buttercup plant with a beautiful, light blue flower containing black seeds. Cumin belongs to the umbelliferae and looks herbaceous. Its seeds are brownish-green. And when it comes to taste, at the latest, the difference becomes even clearer: while the seeds of black cumin taste nutty and somewhat reminiscent of pepper, the latter are characterised by their very intense, bitter and pungent aroma. So don't worry if you're not the biggest cumin fan - black cumin seeds are certainly something for you anyway!

Recipes with black cumin seeds

Wondering how best to use and eat black cumin in the kitchen? Bake, pita bread, some rolls or quinoa hemp crackers and give the baked goods a special nutty-spiced flavour with the seeds. As black cumin originates from West Asia, it is not surprising that the spice fits wonderfully into many different oriental dishes. Our Arabic lentil salad, a ginger and lentil soup or some bake carrots with hummus are quick and easy to make and go perfectly with some black cumin. We recommend roasting the black cumin seeds in a pan before using them – this gives them an even stronger aroma! The little seeds are a great secret ingredient, to give your lunch bowl an unusual aromatic note. If you are a fan of black cumin, you should also try our black cumin oil, which is great in soups, with bread and on salads.

Der Echte Schwarzkümmel
Der Echte Schwarzkümmel

Die Pflanze, an der Schwarzkümmel wächst, wird Echter Schwarzkümmel genannt. Sie wird bis zu 50 cm groß und lebt nur ein Jahr.


Während des Reifeprozesses öffnet sich die Pflanze und die Samen erblicken zum ersten Mal die Sonne. Erst durch den Kontakt mit der Sonne, entsteht die charakteristische schwarze Farbe der Samen.

Die Ernte

Die Schwarzkümmelsamen können jährlich ab Anfang September geerntet werden. Am besten wird dazu ein Auffangbehältnis genutzt, in dem die Fruchtkapseln hin und her geschüttelt werden können.

Ein MustHave in jeder mediterranen Küche

Ich verwende den Kümmel sehr gerne zum Kochen in fast allen Gerichten aber auch zum Backen. Sie geben einen sehr guten Geschmack ab, für alle die ihn mögen :-)
Aufgrund der guten Qualität, großen Mengen und somit weniger Verpackung und der Preise bestelle ich vor allem Nüsse und Saaten ausschließlich bei Koro.

1-3 star reviews 🙃



Würde ich nicht wieder kaufen.

Hier ist der Plastikgeschmack uns Geruch am Größten. Hatte noch andere Schwarzkümmelsamen da, und der direkte Vergleich ist deutlich.

ottima qualità

una delle mie spezie preferite, le abbino ad ai grani di pepe nero



Sehr gute Qualität und Bio ist ja sowieso wichtig

Schwarzkümmel ist neu für mich. Habe ich gestern in meinen Salat gleich ausprobiert. Der leicht herbe Geschmack passt wunderbar




Lecker auf Salaten und Brötchen etc.
In einem Hadis heißt es: „Schwarzkümmel hilft gegen alle Krankheiten außer dem Tod“



Unschlagbar: Qualität, Geschmack, Grösse und Preis

Ich habe schon oft nach Schwarzkümmel gesucht - bei uns kaum erhältlich in Bioqualität und in einer vernünftigen Packungsgrösse - davon bin ich begeistert!

Sehr gute Qualität

Sehr gute Qualität. Extrem lecker. Sehr guter Geruch. Verschließbarer Beutel. Ich mache den Schwarzkümmel an Salate, Saucen und Eintöpfe. Ich mag den etwas nussigen Geschmack.
