Item Details

(F. vulgare) Called finnocchio in Italy, this fennel variety has broad overlapping leaves that form a large, edible, bulb-like base below its celery-like stalks. The bulb and stalks, as well as the feathery, dill-like leaves that top this 3' tall plant, have a mild licorice or anise flavor. This tender perennial grown as an annual prospers when given a steady supply of moisture.
