Product Overview

Foeniculum vulgare var. azoricum

Larger, more uniform "bulbs," and delicately flavored foliage. Developed for cool, northern climates with good bolt resistance.

You are in for a real treat with this gourmet, but often overlooked, garden wonder. Also called Florence fennel, the white, crisp bulbous stem base has a delicious, anise flavor and can be eaten raw, used to flavor soups and pasta, deep-fried, or sautèed. Feathery foliage is attractive in the garden and is an excellent fresh garnish to fish and chicken. Seed can also be harvested as a spice. Sow in the fall for best success.

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 ?avor. The seeds also taste similar to anise or licorice. 'Perfection' is a florence type fennel.

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.
