The Caraway Plant.
A WILD plant of the umbelliferous kind, frequent in most purls of Europe, but cultivated in Germany for the sake of the seed. I have met with it very common in Lincolnshire.
It grows to a yard high; the stalks are striated and firm; the leaves are finely divided, and the flowers are white and small, they grow in tufts, or umbels, on the tops of the branches; the seeds that follow them are very well known.
The seeds are excellent in the colic, and in disorders of the stomach, they are best chewed.
