Cucurbita pepo
HERB-FENNEL-FLORENCE is a very very much underrated vegetable with so many uses; every part of the plant can be used! The fern like foliage can be trimmed and used as the conventional herb, the seeds can be dried and used for cooking – and of course the thick stems and bulbs can be grated raw in salads or cooked as a vegetable. In addition to all its culinary uses, Fennel is also widely used for its medicinal benefits. An extremely graceful plant that doesn’t look out of place planted in the vegetable garden, herb garden or even in your ornamental borders. Round white bulbs with thick crispy scales that have an excellent flavour.
