Fennel - Florence

Florence fennel, a wonderfully ornamental vegetable, grown for both its swollen leaf bases or ‘bulbs’ and edible leaves. It has a sweet anise-like flavor. Florence fennel is more than versatile: braise or steam it then serve with fish or pork; deep fry it in light tempura batter; try it sliced with a mandolin with shaved Parmesan, or chopped as a crudité to dip in hummus or simply added to a salad.

Size Price Qty
Each Fennel Bulb £1.30
