Anise (Pimpinella anisum) - From Cultivation To Harvesting

Anise (Pimpinella anisum), also known as aniseed or anix, is a plant native to the Mediterranean basin and Middle East and, due to its therapeutic properties, is especially used to relieve various problems of the digestive system, such as indigestion, swelling and gastritis. It is a very aromatic plant and its fruits (or seeds) are used to make tea. When grinded they are also used for making of liqueurs, sweets and other cooking.

In order not to make this post too long, we will talk about the properties of anise in another post and we will now focus on how to grow this plant. At the end of the post you can also watch our educational video, which we filmed over 4 months to show all the stages of development of the plant, from cultivation to harvesting and conservation.




It is important to say that the approximate yield of anise is from 600kg to 1ton/ha, which becomes a low yield when grown in a pot, so it is advisable to prepare several pots or cultivate in a larger area of the garden to obtain a good quantity of seeds. Check out our infographic with the specifications for growing anise.
