Fennel Romanesco

Description

Fennel seeds - Romanesco has big round bulbs weighing between 500g and a massive1kg. It has a high bolting resistance and is best grown for late cropping.

A vegetable plant to grace any plot, an attractive vegetable with tall stems and feathery green foliage. Unlike the fennel in the herb section which is grown specifically for its leaves, the Florence Fennel is grown for the bulbous swollen plant base which can be used chopped raw in salads, braised as a vegetable or added to delicious winter casseroles. It has a mild aniseed taste and a texture similar to that of celery.
