Fennel is native to the Mediterranean region. It is one of Italy’s most popular vegetables. Fennel has a bulb-like base, stalks like celery, and feathery leaves that are similar to Queen Anne’s lace.
The whole fennel plant is edible and lends itself to an extensive variety of cooking applications. In fact, this mildly licorice-flavored vegetable is a member of the parsley family.
