Caraway plants are similar to Dill plants in growth and grow up to 2.5' in flower and up to 1ft wide.
Enjoys full sun, good drainage and fertile soil.
Caraway can be directly sown once the soil warms in the spring, or started indoors and transplanted out once all danger of frost has passed.
This variety of Caraway is annual, producing seeds in the first year. It needs regular water through the summer to prevent premature bolting.
The seeds are harvested to use as a spice once they ripen to a light brown colour, they may also be used for great flavour when they are plump and green. Leaves can also be used as a fresh culinary herb. The brown seeds ripen in late summer from spring planted seedlings.
Caraway seeds are used to flavour breads, sauerkraut, cheeses and meats. They are also often used in deserts and liqueurs.
Traditionally used as a digestive aid, carminative and diuretic.
