Well-known herb, the seeds used to flavour bread, cakes, soups, etc., and the young leaves to add flavour to salads.
- Best grown in full sun in well drained soil high in organic matter.
- Can be sown in spring after the last frost or early autumn.
- Caraway should always be direct seeded as seedlings do not transplant well.
- Autumn sown seeds will often produce seed the following summer.
- Sow thinly about a half inch deep and once large enough to handle thin to a final plant density of six to eight inches apart.
- The seed is very slow to germinate, requiring patience and making weed control important during the seedling stage.
- Since seed will not be produced until the second season, caraway is best grown alongside annuals such as beans or peas.
