This is a late summer sowing variety of Florence fennel 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 always bulbing up well in my garden, but the secret with this and any Florence fennel is not to sow too early.
|Genus||Foeniculum vulgare var. azoricum|
|Common Name||Florence Fennel, Bulbing Fennel|
|Soil Type||Sandy, Fertile|
|Height||Up to 90cm (36in)|
|Sowing, Seeds, Planting||Sow direct June - August.|
|Care Tips||This requires consistent moisture levels to prevent bolting. If you allow one of these to go to seed, you won't need to plant it again for a few years. Grow in a corner of your garden that is far away from other plants, as this will inhibit it's growth.|
|Storing||Store in a plastic bag in the fridge for 3-4 days - it will lose it's flavour with time, so preferably eat it within 24 hours of picking.|
|Harvesting||September-October, once the bulbs have reached the size of a tennis ball. Leave the roots in the ground, so that it can regrow. These are hardy, so will continue to grow even during hard frosts.|
|Cooking Notes||Enjoy the stalks, bulbs and leaves raw or cooked. Try Sarah's Roasted fennel and grape flatbread recipe, or fennel and apple salad with roasted pumpkin seeds.|
