Through the ages, Fennel has been a plant revered for it's medicinal and healing properties. It has been known to help eyesight, particularly treating glaucoma. It is also said to improve milk output for breast feeding mothers, and to relieve colic and other intestinal issues with children.
Florence Fennel produces very uniform bulbs of excellent quality. The bulbs are white of medium to large size and slightly flattened round shape.
Fennel has a lovely anise flavour, and the foliage can also be used as a garnish (harvest a few fronds while the bulbs are growing to add flavour to salads & dressings). They also look stunning in the vegetable patch with their white bulbs and feathery green stems. Be sure to leave a couple to flower as the insects love them.
It is easy to grow and is virtually pest & disease free and is resistant to bolting. Take care when using fennel as its flavor can be overpowering, but complements fish dishes really well or can be served raw in salads for a spike of anise. Days to maturity: 70 - 80
