Caraway(Carum carvi) Herb in 9cm Pot

This hardy biennial, Carum carvi, or Caraway, is also known as Meridian Fennel or Persian Cumin and is very similar in appearance to a carrot plant, with finely divided, feathery leaves and growing numerous long stems. The main flower stem is 40–60 cm tall, holding a small white umbel of flowers which can look very pretty. Caraway produces seed which are crescent-shaped around 2 mm long and this is what the plant is most known for as these have a strong flavour.

Caraway prefers well drained soil and full sun for best flavour. Caraway will happily self seed if left. It looks best planted in a drift to the plants can support each other. 

Herb Usage

Caraway has a multitude of uses, although is probably best known for its use in cooking, especially in caraway seed cake and sauerkraut. The seeds are used to flavour liqueurs, casseroles and stews, especially in Eastern European cooking, and the young leaves can be used in salads they have a flavour somewhere between dill and parsley, while the roots can be boiled as a vegetable.

    What a beautiful plant. Impressive service: arrived much sooner than the 10 days forewarned on the website, packaging excellent & condition of the plant superb. I will be proud to show it at a herbs event on 1 July. Then it will be a welcome addition to my herb collection.
