Fennel, green

Foeniculum vulgare

An impressive cloud of pinnate leaves and a heavenly scent- green fennel is a common sight in the kitchen garden - and we might add that it's a great ornamental, too, what with its height and texture. F. vulgare is a robust, upright biennial (or short-lived perennial) with and flat umbels of small yellow flowers in summer; both leaves and fruits are aniseed-scented and flavoured. As a herb, the leaves are used with fish, sea food and salad dressing. Fennel seed has since long flavoured bread, curries and apple pies, and a cup of fennel leaf tea is known to soothe an upset stomach.
