The Seed Savers Exchange - Called finnocchio in Italy, this fennel variety has broad overlapping leaves that form a large, edible, bulb-like base below its celery-like stalks. The bulb and stalks, as well as the feathery, dill-like leaves that top this 3' tall plant, have mild licorice or anise flavor. This tender perennial grows as an annual prospers when given a steady supply of moisture.
Instructions - Sow seeds indoors ¼" deep. Transplant outdoors after the danger of frost has passed. Harvest before plant blooms to keep the bulb from becoming tough. Prefers well-drained rich soil.
Sow indoors 4-6 weeks ahead of time
Germination 10-15 days
