The small white or yellow flowers have compound umbels with rays of equal length. The finely cut, bi or tripinnate leaves are about 6 to 10 inches long. The upper leaves are on a sheathlike petiole. The dark brown fruit is oblong and flattened with two seeds each and five pale ridges. Every part of the plant is edible, but the seeds are its primary harvest.Sow caraway in spring or autumn. Caraway can be sown in spring as early as the soil can be worked, about the date of the average last frost. Caraway can be sown indoors earlier for transplanting out or start new plants from cuttings taken from new growth in summer or fall.
