Growing Bronze Fennel|
It likes full sun but can tolerate some shade.
Grows in USDA Zones 4-9. Likes well-drained soil with pH 5.5-7.0.
Sow seed in late spring or mid summer. Cover seeds with 1/4 inch of soil. Germinates in 12-18 days.
Thin seedlings 10-12 inches apart in rows 15-18 inches apart.
Grows 4 feet tall. Flowers are yellow.
Bees, birds, and butterflies love the plant.
It has a sweet licorice taste. Good with fish.
The seeds and stalk are edible raw or cooked. The stalk at top is fibrous, so best for cooking but can use young tips raw.
Use in cooking same as you use annual fennel. Annual fennel (Florence Fennel) has a stronger taste than Bronze. The stalk at the bottom (bulb) is not as developed in Bronze Fennel.
Medicinally, seeds are used in teas and tinctures as a digestive aid, expectorant, and tonic.
