Very happy in our cool soil, Perfection Fennel is a superior bulbing variety of this excellent northern garden staple. Beautiful layered bulbs can be harvested small at 2-3" for faster maturity and more tender texture or grown to full size at 5-6" with plants reaching up to 6 feet tall. Fennel can be shaved thin to eat raw on salads, roasted alongside your favorite root vegetables, or mixed in to baked goods for a sweet treat. Feathery leaves have the same mild anise flavor and can be used as a beautiful garnish or as a fresh herb for flavoring your dish. Bolt resistant and grows fairly uniform for commercial production.
