Organic Perfection Fennel Seeds

Grown and harvested in Ontario, organic Perfection Fennel seeds have 80 days to maturity. A large bulbing fennel with larger and more uniform bulbs than the standard European Zefa Fino. Crisp white flesh is full of anise flavour and delicious raw or cooked. Plants are very slow to bolt even when spring transplanted.

Planting Instructions

Direct seed from mid-spring through early summer. Can also be transplanted with care as disturbing roots can cause bolting. Sow seeds .6-1 cm deep and keep moist. Space plants 15 cm. apart in rows spaced 45 cm apart. Water and feed regularly for best results. Harvest foliage throughout the season and harvest bulbs when they swell to 7-10 cm. If bulbs become too large they begin to toughen.

About Organic Seeds

What are organic seeds? An organic seed is an unaltered seed that comes from a purely raised plant with no genetic modification and that has not been affected by chemical applications or additives. Because organic growers are not permitted to use synthetic pesticides on their plants, the plants naturally become adapted to withstand pests and other natural enemies such as harsh weather. They have to, in order to defend themselves. When organic seed is used, the plants have that intrinsic strength. In other words, the flavour, colour, nutrition, and natural defenses are bred into the seed.
