Florence Fennel
Foeniculum vulgare dulco

65 to 100 days — Fennel can be started indoors about six weeks prior to your last expected frost date or succession sown, directly into the garden from early spring into July for a nearly year-round supply of fresh bulbs.

Once the plants have developed an egg-sized bulb at their bases, hill soil up around them to keep them blanched as they grow.  Do not plant near dill, caraway or anise as they are in the same family and flavors can be affected.

Also known as finocchio or vegetable fennel, it has a sweet, celery-like flavor with a hint of anise (licorice).   It can be baked, boiled in soups, and also used raw, finely sliced into garden salads.  The young leaves and stalks can be harvested as needed and are also used for flavoring.

Fennel is hardy to about 20F, is a biennial or perennial in warmer zones (7 and higher), but is generally grown as an annual. Each packet contains 0.5 gram, which is approximately 70 seeds.
