Mammoth Long Island Dill

2.99

The preferred dill for pickling.  Long Island was the hub of pickling at one time.  Farms on the east end and elsewhere on Long island grew cabbage, cauliflower and cucumbers and many of those crops required the perfect dill in their brine or vinegar.  Now rare, Long Island Dill is a giant among dill weed growing 3-5 ft tall with profuse aromatic seed heads and foliage.

Grown at Invincible Summer Farms, Southold, NY

Dill

A packet sows a 10 ft row (200 seeds)

Scatter dill seed thinly (5-6 seeds per foot) in the garden where they are to grow and cover by 1/4 inch.  Plant in mid or late May when the soil becomes warm and make successive sowings every 2-3 weeks to continue harvest into fall.  Dill benefits from moist soil conditions during drought.  Pinch the developing flower stalks as they develop if you want more greens or let them grow and produce seed heads which are prized for pickling.
