Many of the culinary herbs grown in Minnesota are members of two plant families: the mint family and carrot family. The mint family includes basil, oregano, marjoram, catnip, all the mints, as well as rosemary, thyme, lavender, summer savory, and sage. All are grown for their aromatic leaves. The carrot family includes dill, parsley, chervil, cilantro (also known as coriander), fennel, and lovage. They are all grown for their leaves and some for seeds as well. Common culinary herbs from other plant families include chives (Alliaceae), borage (Boraginaceae), tarragon (Asteraceae), and sorrel (Polygonaceae)
