Dill weed is a tall, feathery annual, Anethum graveolens, in the Umbelliferae or parsley family.
Both dill seed and weed (dried leaves) come from the same plant. However, the flavor of fresh dill is very different from the dried variety.
Because dill weed loses its fragrance, it should be added toward the end of cooking time for your dish.
