Description

Aromatic Foliage and Delicious Flavor!

Bulb stays small and tender -- tops for flavor!

90 days from sowing.

Every part of this compact, ultra-tender Florence Fennel is aromatic, and the leaves are as delicious as the bulb! Unlike most other Florence Fennels, Zefa Fino stays small, so that the bulb keeps a succulent texture, never tough or woody. And the white blooms contribute to the beauty of this yummy vegetable!

The show begins in spring, when small white blooms top the glossy, hollow stalks of the plant. The edible bulb forms at the base, rising above the soil line to show off its beauty. Reaching 3 to 5 inches across, it harvests easily because, unlike other Fennels, the root stem is relatively short. And feel free to harvest the leaves all year long for delicious flavoring!

Successful in both our South Carolina and Vermont trial gardens, Zefa Fino is resistant to bolting. You can grow it in spring, summer, or fall. It thrives in nearly any temperature in the sunny garden!

All parts of fennel are aromatic, imparting a sweet anise, or licorice, scent and flavor. Kids (or adults)who like black licorice will love chomping on the raw bulbs of fennel! Growing 24 inches tall and 10 to 14 inches wide. It differs from regular fennel because the stalk forms an edible bulbous base that fades to white.

Grow in rich, light soil in a warm location and provide ample water so that the bulbs will form properly. Pkt is 100 seeds.
