Dill seed is the dried fruit of dill weed, a plant that belongs to a large group of plants that produce umbrella-like flower heads but has the distinction of being the only specimen in the Anethum genus. The seed shares similar characteristics with its cousin, caraway seed, but is flat and milder in flavor. Dill seed is a component of traditional gripe water and is also made into tea, but is best known as pickling seasoning.
