What is Dill Seed?
Dill is a perennial herb native to southwestern Asia, though it has been naturalized throughout Europe and the United States. A member of the celery family, dill was used during medieval times to ward off witchcraft and was revered in Anglo-Saxon England as part of traditional wellness practices. In ancient Greece, the leaves of the herb were used to make a fragrance.
Today, dill has far-reaching uses in a variety of cuisines. Fresh dill leaves can be found in kitchens all around the globe!
Dill requires warm to hot summers to grow properly along with high sunshine levels. In fact, even partial shade can affect its yield. The seeds from the dill plant are viable for three to 10 years when stored properly. These seeds are also used to create its aromatic essential oil.
