Foeniculum vulgare azoricum
Unlike sweet fennel, this produces a bulbous base of delicate anise flavor and crisp texture. Superb sliced raw in green salads, sauteed, or quartered in chicken casseroles.
Does best in cool weather: sow direct in July to mature by fall or start early indoors and plant out in spring.
