The Fennel belongs to the family of Umbelliferae. The seed is very aromatic,
medium-sized, oval-shaped, plate and beige coloured. Fennel sprouts require quite
a long time to grow, normally 13-14 days.
Fennel sprouts are diuretic, they help reduce excesses of liquids and fats from our
organism, they stimulate salivary and gastric secretions as well as choleresis.
Fennel sprouts have a delicate taste and are used to prepare meat and fish dishes
