Baby fennel refers to immature fennel, of which both the bulb and leaves are edible. Its young, bright green or white bulbs are long and thin in comparison to the much rounder, mature fennel bulbs. Baby fennel bulbs are crunchy and are best eaten when they are around 5 centimeters in diameter. Baby fennel also produces long green stems and feathery leaves. Both the bulb and the leaves have a sweet, herbaceous licorice-like taste.
Baby Fennel is available year-round with a peak season in the fall months.
Fennel is botanically classified as Foeniculum vulgare. When harvested young, it is referred to as Baby fennel. Baby fennel has a more delicate taste than when it is mature, and the anise-like notes that the mature version is known for is less pronounced. However, it is used in the same way as the older variant.
Baby fennel contains vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, and dietary fiber.
Baby fennel can be used raw in salads, or as a garnish for pasta or soup dishes. Baby fennel can also be steamed, grilled, baked or sautéed. Baby fennel pairs well with other vegetables like lettuce, tomatoes and radishes. It can be served with oils, butter, parsley, thyme, saffron, citrus, and strong, salty cheeses like pecorino, parmesan, goat’s cheese and feta. Store Baby fennel wrapped in foil in the refrigerator, where it will last for up to a week.
Fennel has a long history of use. In India and Pakistan, it is common for people to chew fennel seeds as a breath-freshener. In traditional Chinese medicine, fennel is used to help with digestive pain, and is seen as a warming herb.
Fennel is native to southern Europe and the Mediterranean region, where it has been used for centuries. It is now naturalized in the United States, Australia and in many parts of Asia. Fennel thrives in temperate climates with plenty of sunlight.
