Caraway, is also known as Meridian Fennel or Persian Cumin and is very similar in appearance to a carrot plant, with finely divided, feathery leaves and growing numerous long stems.

The main flower stem is 40–60 cm tall, holding a small white umbel of flowers which can look very pretty.

Caraway produces seed which are crescent-shaped around 2 mm long and this is what the plant is most known for as these have a strong flavour.

Caraway has a multitude of uses, although is probably best known for its use in cooking. The seeds are used to flavour liqueurs, casseroles and stews, especially in Eastern European cooking, and the young leaves can be used in salads they have a flavour somewhere between dill and parsley.
