(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 grow, flavorful
What are the cons? none
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
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.

What are the cons?
Last year I planted fennel. It took the hard freezes without blinking and produced beautiful bulbs. They were delicious. In the spring I let them go to flower and the swallowtails laid eggs all over them. Fennel is a perennial so about half of them survived the summer here in the mid-90's. I seeded more this last winter. They are growing and slowly forming bulbs now.
