Germ 7-14 days
Zefa Fino is great because all parts of the plant are edible with a sweet, licorice-like flavor. The 4”, medallion shaped bulbs mature in 90 days but the leaves of the 2’ plant can be eaten throughout the summer. Very aromatic and tender, never woody; almost never bolts. 100 seeds
Outdoors- Sow 1/8” deep in mid spring 1-2” apart, thin to 6” apart.
Harvest- When base thickens and bulb is the size of a tennis ball. Cut leaves off 2” above bulb.
Tips- Plant in fertile soil amended with compost. Keep well watered for the best bulbs.
