Fennel is a bulbous, flowering plant that is original to the Mediterranean region and now cultivated in India, Russia and France. From the feathery leaves to the large bulbous root, the entire plant exudes a licorice-like aroma. When cooked as a vegetable, fennel is sweet. The seed is equally pleasant, lending a warm, spicy-sweet aroma and flavor to foods and teas.
