The plant is very similar to fennel with clusters of small, white flowers. Caraway reaches half a meter in height and it generally begins blooming and producing seeds in its second year. The long and tiny seeds are collected and the caraway essential oil is extracted through a steam distillation process.

Some evidence found in lake beds in Switzerland suggests that caraway dates back at least 5,000 years. The Roman Empire often gets credit for spreading caraway throughout Europe during the Crusades. It is said that caraway seeds were cultivated in Europe through the Middle Ages.

A curious myth about Caraway tells the story of the gift of retention. It was believed that caraway could prevent the theft of any object, provided there were caraway seeds inside it.
