This variety of Fennel is eminently suited to the dinner table.
Grown as an annual, it has a very large, bulb like base on the stem that has become so popular as a culinery necessity.
It is similar to celery and can be used raw or cooked, without losing it's vitality.
The bulb does take months to grow to it's full size, but you can use it at anystage of it's growth.
It can get a little 'stringy' as it passes it's prime though.
