Why Does Dill Turn Yellow?

Almost all of us love tarator with lots of dill in it. Yes, however, sometimes dill turns yellow in no time and becomes unusable.

There is almost no cuisine in the world that does not use dill. However, why it turns yellow, we will tell you now.

Why does dill turn yellow

There are a number of reasons why dill turns yellow:

- It can turn yellow because it was not planted correctly, it was not fertilized enough and for other reasons;

- Another reason for dill to turn yellow is either too wet or too dry soil. When it is very hot, the dill leaves curl and start to turn yellow, which means that there is a lack of moisture. When it is very hot, dill becomes weak and sick;

- Dill loves light, however, when it is very hot and it is exposed to direct sunlight, the leaves of the plant turn yellow, dry up and begin to fall off;

- When the soil, in which the dill is planted, is acidic or alkaline, this also causes it to turn yellow. Dill cannot absorb the phosphorus that is available in such soil and becomes sick. To avoid it turning yellow, it is best to plant it in natural soil;

- If dill has thin stems and a yellowish appearance, it means that there is a lack of nitrogen in the soil.

And if you have grown healthy and aromatic dill, use it as soon as possible when cooking:

- yogurt salad;

- tzatziki;

- fried zucchini;

- stuffed peppers.
