Description

A summer sowing variety, which forms the largest, most succulent bulbs, yet it remains tasty, tender and sweet. Out of the many varieties I've tried, this one reigns supreme, bulbing up well in my garden. The secret with this and any Florence fennel is not to sow too early.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

This requires consistent moisture levels to prevent bolting.
