Dill 'Croesus' (Anethum graveolens) is a universal variety, ideal both for growing fresh, green stalks and leaves, as well as for umbels used for pickles. Plants of this dill variety grow strong, rather thick stalks covered with long, feathery, thick and vividly green or dark green leaves.
Quick growth of the 'Croesus' dill makes it possible to grow it from seeds sown directly into the ground from early spring to late summer. Sunny and only partially shaded sites with humous, preferably light and humid soil guarantee abundant harvests. Leaves of this particular variety contain large amounts of etheric oils that show prophylactic effect regulating your digestion and enhancing appetite. Fresh, especially young leaves have a distinctive, very pleasant and fresh scent, resembling the caraway aroma. Leaves can be harvested from May to first October ground frosts.
