Fennel, botanically known as Foeniculum vulgare, is a flowering plant species in the carrot family. It is a perennial herb which contains feathery leaves and small, yellow flowers. It grows to a height of 2.5 meters and has hollow stems. The leaves of Fennel grow up to 40 cm. The leaves of Fennel resemble those of dill, but the difference is that the leaves of Fennel are thinner. Dry schizocarp is the fruit of this herb and is 4 mm to 10 mm long.

Fennel is native to the shores of Mediterranean, but it can be found in many parts of the world especially near the riverbank and on dry soils.

However, these was developed from the words from Old English which are fenol or finol, which came from the Latin word feniculum or foeniculum. Long chain, right? Well, the chain is not finished yet! Feniculum or foeniculum is the diminutive of fenum or faenum which means ‘hay’. Historically, Fennel was used for a lot of purposes which we are unaware of.

Moreover, Greeks gave Fennel the name ‘Marathon’ or ‘Marathos’. They also made a beverage by boiling Fennel in hot water, which helped them lose weight. You might not be aware of European belief. They used to believe that evil spirits roam freely after sunset. So, in order to prevent them from entering the house, they inserted Fennel seeds into the keyholes. Not only this, they used to hang fennel plants over doorways to avoid evil spirits. King Edward, who was the King of England, used Fennels as an appetite suppressant. Because of his personal use, more than eight and a half pounds of Fennel were bought every month. Some of the Christians use Fennel seeds to curb their appetites during their fasting days.
