Di Firenze Fennel

(Foeniculum vulgare) This is the Anise flavored vegetable that Italians love. Large 1 to 2-lb bulbs are delicious in soups, sauteed, baked and raw in salads. This Italian cultivar is fairly early. The authentic "Finocchio" for growers of quality.

What are the pros? Easy to start & grow. Pretty

What are the cons? Bolts easily

Review:

Zone 5a. New gardener. We started a few pots indoors in Feb then planted in April. By early June they were looking like they were about ready to harvest, but the bulbs were still small. Noticed that one has bolted already so we will harvest the larger plants and leave the others. It's OK if they go to flower as they are a beautiful border plant. Kids love to munch on the fronds :) We will try again in July or Aug for a fall crop.

What are the pros? Reliable Germination

What are the cons? Slow

Review:

Slow, slow, slow.... or I'm just incredibly impatient. The germination rates were killer for this herb, but it's been slow to take off. I started in the winter and early spring after frost, and I still have plants that are only about 4 inches tall. I've planted it in various spaces in the yard and it is doing best in a rocky spot that only gets morning sun. That was surprising. I would really like to get some sizeable bulbs to harvest and enjoy more of the herbs before the Phoenix sun burns it all away... It's April and we're already getting up to 100... It's gonna be a hot one!

What are the pros? easy to grow, flavorful

What are the cons? none

Review:

I did not have my hopes up about getting fennel to grow here, so i admit, i just tossed the seeds in with some seed starter on the far corner of a bed of chard and left it up to fate. lo and behold, i now have a fennel jungle over there that i have to nearly beat back with pruning shears in spite of record drought conditions. absolutely marvelous.

What are the pros? Withstands pests, low maintena

What are the cons? No round bulb

Review:

Looks exactly like the picture doesn't form a true round bulb that most people expect. Low maintenance plant for me but is very quick to bolt in any warmish weather. Will only grow this during our winter and early spring next time.
