Product Information


foeniculum vulgare

 Fennel is a short lived hardy perennial indigenous to Europe and related to parsley.

 It is a greyish-green, hairless plant with vertically grooved, branched stems which smell of aniseed when crushed.

 The three or four pinnate dark green leaves have feathery lobes and the yellow flowers appear from July to September.

 Fennel yields both a herb and a spice with the spice coming from the dried seeds.

 It resembles Dill which it can cross-pollinate with and they should therefore be kept apart because the resulting seed will have a much dulled flavour.

                            All plant parts are edible: roots, stalks and leaves.

The flower heads are collected before the seeds ripen and threshed out when completely dried.

 The fruits are oblong and ridged.

 Prefers to grow on bare ground in coastal areas.

 Fennel is used as a flavouring in drinks and sweets and has been used as a vegetable and medicine since ancient times
