Fennel (species Foeniculum vulgare), perennial or biennial aromatic herb of the family Apiaceae (Umbelliferae). According to a Greek myth, knowledge came to man from Olympus in the form of a fiery coal contained in a fennel stalk. Native to southern Europe and Asia Minor, fennel is cultivated in the United States, Great Britain, and temperate Eurasia. All parts of the plant are aromatic and used in flavouring; the blanched shoots are eaten as a vegetable; and the seed is a traditional carminative. The cultivated plant is about 3 feet tall and has stalks with finely divided leaves composed of many linear or awl-shaped segments. The grayish, compound umbels bear small yellow flowers. The fruits, or seeds, are greenish brown to yellowish brown oblong ovals about 6 mm (0.25 inch) long with five prominent longitudinal dorsal ridges. Their aroma and taste are suggestive of anise. They contain 3 to 4 percent essential oil; the principal components are anethole and fenchone. The seeds and extracted oil are used for scenting soaps and perfumes and for flavouring candies, liqueurs, medicines, and foods, particularly pastry, sweet pickles, and fish.
