Common Caraway Seeds Planting Guide

Caraway is a hardy biennial herb that is native to Europe and Asia. It is grown for its aromatic seeds, which are used in a variety of culinary and medicinal applications. Caraway is relatively easy to grow, and it can be planted in the spring or fall.

To plant common caraway seeds from seed:

  1. Choose a sunny spot with well-drained soil. Caraway prefers a pH of 6.5 to 7.5.
  2. Sow the seeds directly in the ground 1/4 inch deep and 4-6 inches apart.
  3. Water the seeds regularly, keeping the soil moist but not soggy.
  4. The seeds should germinate within 7-14 days.
  5. Once the seedlings are a few inches tall, thin them to 12 inches apart.
  6. Water and fertilize the plants regularly. Caraway is a heavy feeder, so it is important to fertilize it every few weeks with a balanced fertilizer.
  7. The plants will produce leaves in the first year and flowers and seeds in the second year.
  8. The seeds are ready to harvest when they turn brown and dry.

To harvest caraway seeds:

  1. Cut off the seed heads and place them in a paper bag.
  2. Hang the bag upside down in a cool, dry place for a few weeks.
  3. Once the seeds are dry, remove them from the seed heads and store them in an airtight container.

Tips for growing common caraway:

  • Caraway is a relatively low-maintenance herb. However, it is important to water it regularly, especially during hot weather.
  • Caraway is susceptible to a number of pests and diseases, such as aphids, whiteflies, and powdery mildew. Inspect your plants regularly for signs of pests or diseases and treat them promptly if necessary.
  • Caraway can be grown in containers, but it is important to choose a container that is at least 12 inches deep.
  • Caraway is a good companion plant for many vegetables, such as cabbage, carrots, and tomatoes.
