Herb Fennel Florence. Florence fennel 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.

Herb Fennel Florence

Herb Fennel Florence. Florence fennel 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.
