I have grown ajwain for many years and always used fresh ajwain in my BBQ recipes and curry. Botanical name of ajwain is Trachyspermum ammi and not Hyoscyamus niger which is absolutely a different plant originating from Egypt. I am not sure if Hyoscyamus niger is found naturally somewhere in Pakistan but it is certainly not a native specie.
Did Postal dept not do any research???

Philatelists would know that this is a very valuable stamp which is not easily available nowadays. Of course I have it (and almost all other stamps shown here) in my personal collection.

Farhan bhai, thanks for the treat, again :)

The Urdu name that appears on the stamp says ajwain khirasani, which seems that this particular plant is probably not native to Pakistan but from Khirasan. If you search the full name, rather than just ajawain then Hyoscymaus niger comes up. I think the postal dept. must have done its homework otherwise it is a bad reflection on the capabilites of the dept.

Farooq sahib, you are right. I just missed out the Khurasani thing. So this is most likely an imported herb and not a native Pakistani plant for sure and therefore, should not have been included in "Medicinal Plants of Pakistan". Trachyspermum ammi, the common ajwain that we all know, is naturally found in India, Pakistan, Srilanka, Bangladesh and Far East. The leaf shape as well as the flowers are absolutely different. Anyway, it's a good addition to the knowledge and I would certainly like to get a Hyoscyamus niger plants from somewhere. :)
