Buying Tips

Fresh dill weed should be feathery, fernlike, and deep green. Avoid leaves that are wet or wilted looking.

Varieties

Both the seeds (the fruits of the plant, which are flat and oval) and dill weed, the top eight inches (20.3cm) of the aromatic, feathery leaves, are used. These are available in fresh and dried forms; however, the fresh forms of both provide the best flavor.
