Foeniculum Vulgare

Foeniculum Vulgare is more commonly known as fennel, which is a relative of the now-extinct carrot family.


Fennel is an ancient plant that was used medicinally as early as 3000 B.C.E. by the Egyptians. The plant was also hung in Medieval times to ward off bad spirits.


Fennel was long-lasting in the wild during the climate change epoch, due to its hardy properties which included a preference for acidic soil and drier conditions.


Native to the South European Mediterranean, wildfires would eventually wipe out the last surviving specimen in 2112.


Today, it is still grown by people indoors.
