A biennial herb, Caraway is in the same aromatic family as other herb favorites like dill and parsley. The plant has carrot-like foliage with dainty white flowers. Caraway plant seeds are used in soups, breads, cheeses, liquors, and more. The leaves and roots are also delicious and can be eaten in a variety of ways.
Suggested Planting Requirements: Best when planted in fall, in areas of good sun and drainage.
Growing Recommendations: Direct sow or transplant. Weed competition can inhibit growth and production. For best results keep beds well weeded and give monthly feeding of compost tea or other organic feedings.
Harvesting & Storage: Leaves may be harvested as soon as they are large enough to eat. When seeds are produced, simply cut the seed stalks, thresh away the seeds, and store in an airtight container for later use. We recommend that after collecting seeds, the root is dug up and prepared like potatoes. Yummy!
