Dill has wispy fern-life leaves. It has a flavour likened to the combination of anise, parsley, and celery with a mild lemon finish. The plant produces lacy yellow flowers that grow in flat-topped clusters called umbels. The blossoms have a fresh sour characteristic much like the herb itself and the dill pickles that they are synonymous with. Their flavor profile is a cross of lemon and parsley with mild anise notes.
