Fennel

A homegrown plant with a licorice-like taste.

The fennel herb (also known as Foeniculum vulgare) is often referred to as an invasive weed, due to its reputation for growing in the wild in less-than-ideal conditions. Its versatility comes from the fact that most of the plant is edible. It has a white bulb, thick stalks, seeds, and leafy-green tops.

Health Benefits of Fennel: 

Due to its well-rounded nutrient profile, fennel has a slew of health benefits. Fennel is a source of vitamin C, potassium, and folate. As a non-starchy vegetable, it’s also a great source of fiber. All of these nutrient components promote a healthy heart and optimal digestion.
