This red-bronze fennel is a non-bulbing type used for its fresh greens. Add the mild young shoots to salads, coleslaw, or veggie dishes. As the plant grows the leaves get more of that deep anise flavor. Very uniform growth that is slow to bolt makes this a great variety for fresh eating and also makes a great ornamental plant. Flowers are edible and seeds can be saved and used for culinary purposes as well.
