Dill averages 90 cm tall with wispy fern-life leaves. It has a flavor likened to the combination of anise, parsley, and celery with a mild lemon finish. The plant produces lacy yellow flowers that grow in flat-topped clusters called umbels. The blossoms have a fresh sour characteristic much like the herb itself and the dill pickles that they are synonymous with. Their flavor profile is a cross of lemon and parsley with mild anise notes.
Dill is available year-round.
Dill, dill weed, or Anethum graveolens, is a quickly growing herbaceous annual that completes its life cycle in as little as two months. With staggered plantings and regular trimmings the dill plant can continue producing tender leaves and edible blossoms into early fall. Dill leaves, seeds and flowers are entirely edible and commonly found in Scandinavian, Russian, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine. Having a different flavor than dill leaves, dill seed is more intense and has a less licorice taste. Dill seed flavor is enhanced by dry-roasting the seeds.
