Florence Fennel Varieties

Introduction

Florence fennel is grown for its edible bulb that forms at the base of the plant, but its leaves can also be eaten. Florence fennel, a vegetable, should not be confused with the herb of the same name (fennel) – the herb does not produce a swollen bulb at its base.

Both the vegetable and herb share a delicious aniseed flavour. The bulb can be steamed, fried, and roasted, and is often used to accompany fish dishes.
