Dill varieties

rlicari added on December 25, 2016 | Answered

Does the age of the dill plant affect its appearance, aroma and texture? I bought some fresh cut dill for cooking that was very feathery and fine, and had quite a distinct aroma. Some dill I bought recently did not have the same qualities. The leaves were less fine and the aroma didn't seem obvious (photo attached). Could this have been a different variety or just from an older plant? Thank you Rosanna
