Foeniculum vulgare

Botanical Properties

Fennel is a biannual plant belonging to the Apiaceae family. It can reach up to 2m in height, and at the tips of its long, flute shaped stems are umbrella shaped clusters of yellow flowers. A highly aromatic bulb is found at the base of the plant. Common fennel prefers well drained, sun drenched soils in warm climates.  

Origin and history

Originating around the Mediterranean Basin, the fennel plant was traditionally linked to love and magical rituals. It has also long been cultivated and used for its medicinal properties, more precisely as a carminative, digestion stimulator and galactogenic agent, whilst additionally being used in cooking for is anise-like aroma and taste. Consumed raw or cooked, its leaves, seeds, and bulb are a subtle addition to many dishes, such as those containing fish or grilled meat. It is also used to flavour liqueurs and “aperitif” wines.
