Fennel Seed Whole




Please note: Due to seasonal factors, our fennel seeds are not as green as previous crops. We have evaluated the flavour and we are confident that they will perform just as well in cooking.

Used in many curries, satay sauces and Indian & Asian recipes.

Other Common Names

Florence Fennel, Finnochio, Lucknow Fennel Seed. Botanical Name: (Foeniculum vulgare dulce)

Description & Use

Native to Southern Europe and Asia Minor, it was a symbol of success and in ancient Greece was referred to as ‘marathon’ in reference to the famous battleground on which the Greeks gained victory over the Persians in 490BCE. Fennel seeds should be pale yellow to green and have a characteristic ‘anise’ flavour. Fennel, although stronger in flavour than coriander, is one of the amalgamating spices, having the ability to bring other flavours together, while imparting its delicious fresh ‘anise’ notes to Malaysian curries and satay sauces. Lucknow fennel is much greener in colour, sweeter in flavour, and generally used as an after dinner breath freshener or in sweet dishes.

Produce of India packed in Australia.
