Now you can buy Fennel Seeds (the vegetable) from David's Garden Seeds®. Currently, we have four varieties.

Known to Italian gardeners as Finocchio. Dill-shaped leaves with distinctive licorice flavor. May produce bulbs, which can be blanched or eaten raw in salads. 36 to 60 inches tall. Organically grown.
Medicinal: Fennel is used as a carminative to relieve flatulence and colic while stimulating digestion. It is also anti-spasmodic, anti-inflammatory, and is similar to anise in calming bronchial coughs. It has estrogenic activity and stimulates milk flow in nursing mothers. Harvest in about 90 days.
Orazio Fennel Vegetable 50 Hybrid Seeds
Large, thick, rounded bulbs. Crisp and flavorful with a nice anise flavor. Highly uniform. Due to its heavier bulbs, Orazio has a higher yield potential than flatter, open-pollinated fennels.

Harvest in about 50 days for a baby fennel and 80 days for a full sized fennel.
Preludio Fennel 50 Organic Seeds
Big rounded bulbs from organic seeds. Heavy bulbs are uniform, high yielding, and offer the traditional anise flavor. Suitable for late summer and early fall harvest in most areas. Preludio can also be transplanted in January for an April harvest in areas with mild winters, such as coastal California.Harvest in about 50 days for a baby fennel and 80 days for a full sized fennel.

nighttime temperatures, the availability of plant nutrients, many unknown climate factors and insects/pest interact to determine a variety's
