About dill[]

Wikipedia Article About Dill leaf on Wikipedia

Dill (Anethum graveolens) is a short-lived annual herb, native to southwest and central Asia. It is the sole species of the genus Anethum, though classified by some botanists in the related genus Peucedanum as Peucedanum graveolens (L.) C.B.Clarke. Dill leaves must be used fresh, as they lose their flavour rapidly whenever dried; even freeze-dried dill leaves have very little flavour. It is thus necessary to grow a supply of plants, rather than store the leaves.
