  • What is it:
  • Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) is an edible aromatic plant, known for its aniseed and slightly sweet flavor. It is characterized by having a bulbous bulb at the base of the stems, whose parts, including leaves, stems and seeds, are edible.
  • Historical origin:
  • Fennel has its roots in southern Europe and northern Africa, specifically in the Mediterranean region. It has been used throughout history by various cultures both in the kitchen and for medicinal purposes.
  • Planting time to harvest:
  • Fennel is usually sown in spring or fall and matures for harvest in approximately 90 to 120 days.
  • Soil, climate and temperature:
  • Fennel prefers well-drained and fertile soils, rich in organic matter. It is a hardy plant that can grow in a variety of climates, but it avoids extremely hot temperatures and severe frosts.
  • Irrigation:
  • During germination it is important to keep the soil moist, but once established the plant is relatively drought tolerant.
  • Sowing and germination:
  • Fennel seeds can be sown directly into the ground or in pots indoors for later transplanting. Germination usually occurs in about two weeks.
  • Crop:
  • Fennel does not require much maintenance, but weed control and, in some cases, tying down the plants to keep the stems straight is essential.
  • Harvest:
  • Fennel can be harvested once the bulbs reach a suitable size, usually 8-10 centimeters in diameter. In addition, its leaves and stems can be collected during the entire growth cycle. The seeds, also edible, are collected when the flower heads dry up on the plant.

Fennel, with its culinary versatility and medicinal attributes, has become a valuable resource in cooking and traditional medicine.
