Fennel was once native only to the Mediterranean region, but now most Fennel is grown in India, China, Egypt and Turkey. In ancient Greece, it was considered a symbol of success. In more recent history, the Puritans referred to Fennel as the "meeting seed" as it was a favorite practice to chew the seeds during meetings.
