Fennel (Origin: Mediterranean)
Did you know that fennel grows best in full sun? Once the bulb begins to form, you should “hill” the soil over the bulb – this keeps the color more white and sweet – provided your intent is to eat the bulb and not just use the fronds or seeds for flavoring. The bulb should be ~3+” before you harvest it.
