What is Fennel?
For many, the thought of fennel brings memories of eating the familiar, licorice-flavored bulb, but this plant is much more than just a spicy side dish. A member of the carrot family, fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) is a perennial flowering herb related to caraway and anise. Its reaching smooth stalks can reach a height of 6 feet; the plant also has dill-like feathery leaves and boasts golden flowers that contain the aromatic and flavorful kernels. The large bulbs that many people are familiar with belong to the finocchio (“fragrant hay” in Latin) variety of fennel.
Native to India, Japan, and Southern Europe, fennel has been used for everything from warding off evil during the Middle Ages, to Egyptian cuisine, and even to promote courage and longevity in Ancient Greece. Did you know the ancient Greek word “marathon” even stems from fennel? Marathon, an age-old town about 26 miles from Athens, means “a place filled with fennels,” as fennel plants once thrived and were abundant in the town.
