About Orion Fennel Plants

Orion Fennel, or Foeniculum vulgare offers a modern twist on a classic favorite, boasting a compact growth habit and retaining the rich, distinctive flavor characteristic of fennel. Unlike its larger counterparts, this hybrid variety doesn’t overshadow other herbs in your garden, making it an ideal addition for herb gardeners seeking both flavor and space efficiency.

This herb’s versatility extends beyond the kitchen, with its feathery green foliage and dill-like yellow flowers enhancing its visual appeal in garden landscapes. Harvest the young leaves for salads, soups, dips, or roasted dishes. Fennel brings a delightful anise flavor that elevates various culinary creations.

Bred for larger, juicier bulbs, Orion Fennel bulbs reach 3-4 inches in diameter. Plants that mature in cooler fall temperatures will develop a larger bulb. Ensure they are stored separately from the leaves to preserve freshness.

Easy Care Tips for Orion Fennel

This organic herb is straightforward to cultivate! This hybrid fennel thrives in full sun to partial shade, preferring well-drained, enriched soil. Maintain consistent moisture levels, ensuring soil remains moist but well-drained to prevent root rot.

This Fennel plant adapts well to various growing conditions. Orion Fennel is a cold-hardy herb and thrives as a perennial in zones 2-10. Orion Fennel is considered to be relatively easy to grow due to its resistance to tip burn, which often affects fennel plants.

Its moderate growth rate ensures dependable yields of large, rounded bulbs, perfect for culinary experimentation and culinary delight. With proper care, Orion Fennel offers a bountiful harvest and culinary enjoyment throughout the growing season.
