Fennel bulb

Other names: anise, sweet anise, finocchio

Also known as Sweet Anise. Sweet, mild licorice flavor. Popular European vegetables, especially in Italy and France. Not to be confused with herb anise, which is grown for its seeds and sold as seasoning. The feathery fronds can be used as an herb, like dill weed, to flavor soups and stews. The broad bulbous base is treated like a vegetable.
