Fennel - Foeniculum vulgare Mill

Evergreen herb of ruderal habitat introduced in Chile. It grows throughout the country, but is more abundant in the Central Zone.

The flowering tops are collected from wild plants in late summer. However, Puelche has developed crops of sweet varieties.

In 1849, D. Clos refers to the Foeniculum vulgare Mill in Claudio Gay’s "Flora of Chile". This species is a member of the Umbelliferae family, and is easily identifiable by its characteristic taste and smell.

Properties: Digestive, carminative and anti-flatulent, appetite stimulant.
