Any Other Vegetable?
We grow fennel every year, and this year we have had a bumper crop of 20 or more good sized bulbs - that haven't bolted yet. This is one crop where F1 hybridisation really is worth it.

Years ago (at least 20) our fennel came first in the "Any Other Vegetable" category. Despite changing dietary fashions I suspect it still won't have a category of it's own. Another thing that hasn't changed is that I don't get around to making successional sowings of this crop - maybe next year!
