A stellar bulbing Florence fennel with an excellent sweet anise-like flavor that mellows with cooking. Selma Fino is usually the sweetest tasting. Takes about 80 days to form full-sized bulbs, however, it can be harvested sooner at a smaller size. Very white bulbs are fairly uniform and won’t prematurely bolt if planted in spring. Tops can be used as a fresh herb, adding a mellow fennel flavor to dishes or salads. Unique compared to other bulb type fennel, some plants have a perennial nature. The flowers are highly attractive to bees and other beneficial insects. Fennel leaves, florets, and seeds can be used for culinary purposes as an herb.
