Montebianco (Mont Blanc) is a heritage variety of fennel that produces the most wonderful large round bulbs, well closed and crunchy with intense green leaves. It also resists bolting. Eaten raw it bears a distinctive aniseed flavour, once cooked it develops into something more sweeter and more subtle.


Franchi, established in 1783, is the oldest family-run seed company in the world. It specialises in endangered and heritage vegetable varieties, inspiring growers to support biodiversity by planting something slightly different from the mainstream.
