Caraway (Carum carvi) is a hardy biennial herb known for producing tasty and versatile seeds. It has finely divided, feathery leaves, which in its second year of growth produce decorative clusters of pink-white flowers.


Its seeds have immense culinary value, often being used to flavour soups or roast meats. The young leaves also make a nice addition to salads. As all parts of the plant are edible, once you have harvested the seeds you can dig up and use the tap root in the same way as you would any other root vegetable.
