Product Overview

Foeniculum vulgare var. azoricum

Grown as a vegetable for the succulent, sweet, licorice-?avored "bulbs" or as an herb for the delicately ?avored foliage and aromatic seeds.

If you have never tasted fennel, you are missing a treat. Also called Florence fennel, it can be eaten raw, used to flavor soups and pasta, deep-fried, or sautéed and added to gravy served over steaks! Feathery leaves are attractive in the garden and are a fresh garnish to fish, chicken, tomatoes, and sauces. Seed can also be harvested as a spice.

Variety Info

The crunchy, dense, licorice-flavored "bulb" is comprised of tightly layered, overlapping, swollen stalk ends. The feathery foliage looks similar to dill, but has a delicate, anise flavor. The seeds also taste similar to anise or licorice.

Sowing Inside

4 to 6 weeks before average last frost (recommended for spring "bulb" production). Use biodegradable pots for transplant.

Sowing Outside

"For "bulb": Midsummer for fall harvest is optimal; ideal soil temperature is 60°–75°F. In cool summer areas (under 75°F): 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost. Mild Climates: Sow in fall for cool season harvest. For foliage only: Every 3 weeks after average last frost until midsummer.
