Organic Dill

Anethum graveolens

Botanical Properties

Dill is often used as a condiment, and belongs to the Apiaceae family. Otherwise known as aneth, dill is often compared to fennel by its visual aspect and characteristic odour. This annual plant can often grow up to 150cm. It has umbrella spokes that appear in summer and will mature in September, producing its precious grains.

Origin and history

Originating in Europe, more precisely in the Mediterranean Basin, dill was used and cultivated by the Egyptians, Greeks and other peoples all the way into central Asia. They used it for traditional pharmacology, its therapeutic properties, and in cooking. Its fine and fresh leaves, which have an aniseed-like taste, go superbly with fish, salads and sauces. Dill seeds will perfectly fragrance special breads, wines and liqueurs.
