Anise is the annual herb of the parsley family (Apiaceae), although it has a sweet flavor. It is cultivated chiefly for its fruits, called aniseed, the flavor of which resembles that of licorice. Anise is an annual, herbaceous plant that grows to approximately 3 feet tall. Its leaves near the base of the plant are simple, and the leaves higher on the stem are pinnate, and it flowers in July, in dense and white.
