Fennel is a flavorful herb. The plants are green and white, with feathery leaves and yellow flowers. Both the crunchy bulb and the seeds of the fennel plant have a mild, licorice-like flavor. The flavor of the seeds is stronger because of their essential oils. Fennel and fennel seeds have many health benefits and may provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial effects.
