Fennel has a round bulb that grows underground with a long, green, feathery top. It smells of licorice (or anise). Fennel bulbs range from white to pale green and are covered by overlapping stems to the top of the bulb. Fennel is related to other herbs and is a member of the parsley family. Bulbs have a milder taste compared to the green tops, and all parts of the vegetable are edible.

Fennel should be kept in cold refrigeration. Separate fennel with other veggies in the crisper drawer to protect the lifespan of the food. Properly stored fennel can last up to 5 days.
