Fennel Seeds Native to the Mediterranean
Native to the Mediterranean, wild foraged fennel seeds grow plentifully at La Furtuna Estate. Easily recognized for tall, feather-like foliage, fennel grows an umbrella-shaped cluster of bright yellow flowers, which later turn to seeds. Warm and aromatic, wild fennel seeds pairs perfectly with both sweet and savory recipes around the world, particularly Italian, Indian, and Middle Eastern fare.
