TasCowboy 349554 244 Fennel either
Fennel crop (grown for essential oil production), Cressy, Tasmania, 2001.
The crop is a perennial, usually lasting for 4-5 years.
The crop is usually direct harvested with a forage harvester with the harvested crop taken away for steam distillation to remove the anethole (oil). For those unfamiliar with fennel, think aniseed/ licorice taste.
Not alot is grown in the state but they are looking to expand the area produced.
Another shot of the same crop, giving a wider, longer view.
