Dukat Dill
Anethum graveolens

A European selection of ‘Mammoth’ dill. Dukat is more fragrant and flavorful than other types of dills.  It also produces the small delicate leaves that are used for culinary purposes, for a longer period of time than other varieties.

Dill is a hardy annual native to the Mediterranean region. In Biblical times it was know by its Greek name, Anethon. The common name Dill comes from the old Norse word, dilla (to lull) and alludes to its historical medicinally properties as a carminative.

Typically used as a culinary herb. Fine, tender parts are finely chopped and added to sauces. Also used fresh in pickling. Seeds and leaves are also used dried as a seasoning. Each packet contains 0.5 gram, which is approximately 180 seeds.

Slow, but fragrant
This dill grew very slowly in my garden. I didn't get much and it never set seed, but I must mention the aroma. The leaves put out intense flavor and fragrance. This is not the usual sharp dill smell; it's mild and floral with jasmine and rose overtones. This would be amazing with salmon, but may be too mild for pickles. I didn't get enough to try much. When dried, it loses much potency. The flavor and fragrance remain the same, but you need to use a lot more of it. I intend to plant this again, but I think I'll start it early in pots. Maybe I'll just grow it inside on a sunny windowsill. Unlike the usual "mammoth dill", it doesn't grow very big.
