Details

Originally named Long Island Dill, this tall billowing relative of Queen Anne's Lace and carrots is perfect for edible landscaping, container gardens and, well, pickles, of course! All parts of the plant--leaves, stems, flowers, and seeds--can be used to impart dill flavor to dishes. We particularly enjoy our early mornings in the seed garden when the dew dropped dill refracts the sunlight.

Beyond its pungent flavor and culinary versatility, dill has a long history of medicinal use. Ancient Egyptians referred to dill as a soother; gladiators believed it imparted courage; churchgoers felt the seeds imbued alertness; and villagers considered dill a protective charm. Dill still makes great pickles, but what of its other uses for the modern age? Where do we most need to be soothed, alert, courageous, and protected? Traffic jams on Long Island. Grow this herb for its flavor, and you may just prevent road rage to boot.
