CULTURE: Caraway is biennial, producing seeds the second year. Seed germinates quite easily but seedlings are very difficult to transplant because of the long tapered root and small fibers. Sow the seed in rows from Apr. 15th - June 15th. Space the rows 16 in/41 cm apart, by pinching them off at ground level. Caraway likes dry sandy soil in full sun. Plants resemble wild carrot or Queen Anne's lace. Foliage is feathery, and delicate, growing only about 8 in/20 cm high the first year. A spring sowing will not produce a crop of seeds the first season but a fall sowing can be harvested in June. Plants self-seed themselves easily. Space or thin 2 year old plants at least 12 in/31 cm apart.
