The refreshing flavor of dill will surely win you over (if you don’t already love it)! ‘Tetra’ is a bushy, late flowering variety, meaning more leaf production for dill lovers. It is heat tolerant which makes it slow-to-bolt, so you will enjoy fresh picked, aromatic dill throughout the season. Dill is an important host plant for caterpillars of swallowtail butterflies. ‘Tetra’ has fern-like, softly delicate, dark green, aromatic leaves.

This 3 gram packet sows up to 240 feet.

Heads should be placed in bottom of bag and the top of the bag should be tied shut around the stems. Seeds will fall to the bottom of the bag. Store seeds in airtight glass jar.
