Fennel (Maratho), find it on earth of Marathon and not only
Fennel is similar to dill in looks but the taste is very different, with a distinct anise flavour. Today it is used to flavour savoury foods. The Greek name for fennel is marathon, taken from the place name Marathon, where the Greeks defeated the Persians (49BC), the battle is said to have taken place in a field covered with fennel. Ancient Greeks believed fennel promoted endurance and longevity.
