Apiaceae. Europe, Central Europe, Asia Minor. H 0.6m x L 0.3m. Z5. Biennial or ephemeral perennial. Do not confuse Caraway with cumin (Cuminum cyminum), a related species also used as a spice. Carum Carvi is cousin to carrot. Hardy and easy to grow, it goes dormant in winter and comes back in early spring from its pivotal root. Abundant soft green foliage, thin and cut, quickly followed by white flowers in June and a multitude of aormatic seeds to harvest in August. Caraway is used as a culinary vegetable, spice, condiment, and infusion. All parts of the plant are used. The young fresh leaves flavor salads, soups and meats like parsley. The adult leaves can be cooked and incorporated into various preparations or soups. The seed is used fresh or dried as a spice in salads, breads, vegetables and meat, or crushed for infusion. It is also chewed to freshen breath and aids digestion after a meal as fennel seeds. It may also flavor liqueurs. Finally, an essential oil is extracted from the seed to flavor drinks, desserts, and ice cream. The young root can be cooked like a carrot. Carum Carvi also has many medicinal properties: Antiseptic, Antispasmodic, Aromatic, Carminative, Digestive, Emmenagogue, Expectorant, Galactogogue, Ophthalmic Parasiticide and Stimulant. The use of caraway in the diet should not be excessive (risk for kidney and liver).

Sow early in spring (april), in place, in a neutral or acidic soil, deep, well drained, exposed to direct sunlight. Easy cultivation, a must have in a garden of aromatic and medicinal plants. 1 packet of 0.3g (about 100 seeds)
