Fennel Flower

Fennel Flower is what grows out of the Fennel plant when you just let it grow. The trick is to don't mind the flower, forget about it and let nature do it's work. Unfortunately, fennel growers usually harvest the fennel before it starts growing flower. The fennel itself isn't good anymore for high quality grade food, so there's no use for them to let it grow.

However, the flower has an amazing spectacular taste! It reminds me of a dutch candy called "English Licorice". So, we asked our grower to let some of his fennel just grow and he was willing to help us out. Gastrogin has one of the best types of fennel flower you can find, all natural!

Fennel Seeds

Fennel Seeds

Fennel has a very rich history to it and derives its name from the Latin word Feniculum, which means "hay". It has a distinct anise-character that comes from the component anethole, the same aromatic compound found in (star) anise. However, the flavor in fennel is much more subtle and less pungent.

The seeds are best when they are green and have a wide variety of culinary uses. From India to the modern kitchens and even found as an ingredient in toothpaste. Our fennel seeds come directly from a seed producer in Holland who only works through plant breeding and certainly not with GMO techniques.
