Product Abstract: Also known as Common Fennel, Fennel is an erect growing perennial herb native to southern Europe and the Mediterranean area. Reaching a height of 1.5 meters (approximately 4.5 feet), the plant has yellow flowers. Bitter Fennel was known as ‘Fenkle’ in the Middle Ages, from the Latin ‘Foenum’ meaning 'hay.' The ancients believed it gave one longevity, courage, and strength and that it warded off evil spirits.
