Anise is an annual plant with raised shoots, which produce beautiful umbellate inflorescences; it grows around 50 centimetres in height. In late summer, this variety produces seeds that can be harvested as soon as they turn brownish. The dried seeds with a characteristic aroma are commonly used in baking as well as in alcohol production. Anise seeds are also used for making infusions, which are an excellent remedy for cough and stomach problems.
Growing: sow the seeds directly into the soil in 30cm spacings from March to April. The seeds germinate within two weeks. After the seeds have germinated, grow the plants in rows in 5-6cm spacings. This variety prefers fertile soils in covered sunny positions.
