Fennel is an upright perennial herb that can grow three to ten feet tall. The plant has thick, ribbed, hollow stems that grow from its rooted bulb (known as the crown). From the stem, feathery foliage, that look similar to dill, sprout off. As the plant matures, it creates an umbrella-shaped cluster of bright yellow flowers. Fennel has a sweet, licorice-like flavor and citrus notes.
Fennel is a member of the Apiaceae family. Fennel is often harvested for its smaller bulbs, which are the most fragrant and succulent. One popular variety of Fennel, Florence fennel, is one of the three main herbs used in the preparation of absinthe.
