Leaves and seeds are used as a seasoning. Wispy green leaves have a soft, sweet taste. Seeds are similar in taste to caraway. A great accompaniment to fish. Also used in pickling. Grown year-round in the Tower Garden.
HARVEST: Foliage may be harvested once the plants have become established right up to flowering. Harvest seed heads just as the seeds begin to turn a golden brown. Foliage and seeds can both be dried and stored for future use.
PERFECT FOR OUTSIDE SOIL GARDENS, CONTAINERS, AND FLOWER POTS TOO!
