Organic Herb Fennel Florence

Organic Herb Fennel Florence is grown primarily for its fleshy bulb. Which has a delicious aniseed flavour, although the leaves can be utilised. We believe this to be the best variety only growing 2-3 ft tall. Which makes it an ideal candidate for smaller gardens. The Bulb can be steamed or boiled and served with a creamy sauce or used raw in salads. This is not the same as Common Fennel grown purely for its leaves.
