Q.Harvesting fennel bulbs

Zone Delaware, more or less | Kate Connelly added on July 5, 2019 | Answered

Thanks for the info on fennel bulbs! I’m confused about one thing: you write “measure the bulb with a ruler” but as the buld is underground, I don’t see how to do this. Or will the bulb sort of emerge from the soil when it’s ready? My plants are very tall, so I think harvetsing time might be close! 🙂 Delicious parboiled, then topped with parmesan and baked in the oven to golden bubbling deliciousness.

The leaves are ready for harvest in as little as a month, while bulbs may take two or three months to reach maturity. You should began to see the bulb emerge from the soil and then you began to watch it for harvest!
