Fennel, Foeniculum vulgare dulce, is an aromatic plant. It's up to 250cm high and belongs to the family Umbelliferae. Its colour ranges from green to green sea and it has got a strong spicy smell. The Fennel stem is erect, round, smooth and full of latex. The lower leaves are petiolate and count on long pods, and their fruit is 4-10mm long, half as wide or less, and ribbed. Because the seed of the Fennel fruit is strongly attached to it, the whole fruit is often mistakenly called "seed".
Fennel is native to the Mediterranean region and has spread to UK and Germany, among others. The Greek word for Fennel is marathon or marathos, and derives from the place where the famous battle of Marathon occurred, that is, a plain full of Fennel. The first reports about Fennel refer to its use in Egypt over 3,000 years ago for bad digestion, which is included in the monographs by German Commission E. Fennel has got a mild aniseed-flavoured taste and scent due to its aromatic compounds, and is used as a spice in sweets and spirits.
