BoTree fennel has a licorice aroma with a fresh, bright taste. This anise-like flavour is sure to bring a refreshing sensation to your cooking. 


You’ll taste a slight saltiness, that's the flavour of the sandy desert soil, followed by a sharp sweetness at the finish.


Desert fennel is grown by smallholder farmers on an oasis in the desert of central Egypt, Fayoum.


Ancient canal systems divert the River Nile’s waters to irrigate the fields, producing yellow flowers with a sensational scent of licorice.


It has been growing in this region for millennia. The fennel is 100% organically-grown, and the seeds are harvested and picked by hand. 


Add to: Stir-fries, curries, toss in vegetables before roasting

  • At BoTree we are passionate purveyors of the highest quality spices. That’s why we choose single-origin spices which come from protected and designated regions. The most important thing about single origin is its traceability. With coffee, we like to know exactly where the beans come from and it’s exactly the same with spices. Blends have a bad reputation because the more you mix, the less pure they become - losing both quality and flavour. Using single-origin spices means you can experience one particular taste at its purest form, unique to that particular environment.

    All our spices come from selected regions where the climate, soil and traditional know-how yield the finest spice crops.
