Dill or dill weed is a perennial herb, indigenous to Southwest Asia, and usually grows in a single, upright, hollow stem that grows up to a metre tall, with leaves divided into filaments. It blossoms with clusters of yellow edible flowers. It grows best in cool weather that does not experience frost. Its scent is soft and sweet, with a faint hint of aniseed, while its flavourl is very similar to caraway, with grassy notes of lemon, pine and fennel. The leaves are wispy and fernlike, and provide tangy flavour to salads, seafood, pickled dishes and sauces.
