Dill, Ambrosia (Organic)
Anethum graveolens. 35 days.
An amazingly fragrant variety of dill. Heavenly in the garden and a key ingredient for many pickle recipes. You can’t have too many jars of dilly beans in the pantry. Also delicious in borscht (beet soup), and cooked with fish or potatoes. Flowers are very attractive to pollinators. We sourced Ambrosia dill originally from Peace Seeds in Corvallis, Oregon. There is a Ukranian or Russian variety of the same name, it may be the same but we’re unsure. Aka, Ambrojia.
Direct sow this annual 1/4“ deep, spring through fall, in rows that are 12’’ apart. Germinates best in warm soil. Succession sow for continued harvest. Deadhead to prevent self-seeding.
Collect seeds from umbels that are fully dry. Shell by hand, winnow to clean. Finish air-drying if necessary before sealing in airtight container. Isolate from varieties of same species by 1⁄4 mile.
