Caraway

(Carum carvi) Caraway is a biennial plant in the Apiaceae, or carrot, family. Caraway is perfect in a moonlight garden because of its twinkling white blossoms, which sparkle under the moonlight. It is also known to attract beneficial wasps. Typically the delicious seeds are used for flavoring many dishes, from desserts to soups. In some parts of the world, caraway seeds are served after meals much like an after-dinner mint, and they are a staple in German cooking. The leaves are used in salads, stews, and sauces. Caraway is also medicinal. The seeds of the plant are the most used, and they do not produce until the second year. Caraway thrives in full sun and well-drained soil with a pH range of 6.5 to 7.0. It isn't a good plant for hot, humid climates and prefers cool temperate zones. Ideal germination temperature is 70 F. Plant seeds 1/2 inch deep and thin to 8-12 inches apart. Moisture is important, but be sure to keep the leaves dry when watering.
