Review:

WOW! This was my first time growing fennel and I had NO idea that the leaf fronds would be so delicious! They are slightly sweet with a mild anise and trace celery taste. While I'm gardening in my greenhouse I like to nibble on the fronts and love to add them to salads with a sweeter dressing. The bulbs are growing nicely and the plants are very pretty. Mine have been growing since late last winter in and out of my greenhouse (when night temps > 40 F) and they've been doing very well. They don't like to have the roots dry out - if this happens the fronds will start to die first, but if you water quickly the plant will be fine. Highly recommend.

Review:

Fennel is easy to grow,it's delicious, it hardly needs watering at all, but,, it has to be growing fast for the leafbases to be tender enough to eat. They have a texture similar to celery and must be ''de-stringed''. They can be cut with the roots left in the ground and they will regrow every year. Stems can be candied or just munched, and seeds are great in cakes and other sweet things, Some people use them in fish dishes too. Seeds are hard to dry as they must be picked before they shatter out and dried in the shade, turning a few times a day as they sweat alot.

What are the pros? formed jungle like conditions

What are the cons? too many plants

Review:

This one was such a nice surprise. It is perfect for mountain climate. I got so much of it, that at the end I did not know what to do with the plants. Even neighbors started avoiding me because I kept offering fennel. I'll definitely keep this one, but make sure to plant way less.

Review:

I started these indoors and set them out very late, but they did exceptionally well (zone 7) and we enjoyed them from leaf to bulb for several weeks. I didn't even get to try to collect seed because we ate them all. My children would pull off a handful of fronds to nibble on whenever they passed by. Sweet, fragrant, and delicious!
