FENNEL ‘Orion F1’

Botanical Name
Foeniculum vulgare

One of the best bulbing fennel we have trialled. The rounded bulbs are medium to large, thick with a very crisp anise flavour. Harvest either in late summer/autumn or early spring, depending upon when sown. A vegetable that we use in salads with apple, walnuts and lettuce or chicory. Also used in soups, with fish or grill for a distinct delicious flavour. A good yielding variety. Treated seed (thiram). 20 seeds.
