Dill. An herbaceous plant which grows practically all over India and north and west across Russia into Europe. It is about 1 meter (3 ft) in height, with wispy leaves bearing clusters of small yellow flowers and oval, pod-like fruits. The fruits are left to ripen on the plant until they have dried. The fragrant seeds are then extracted, threshed and dried. It has an aroma slightly reminiscent of caraway, warm, aromatic and tingly.
