How to Store Fennel?

Choose sturdy, white fennel bulbs. If the stalks and fronds are still linked, they should be smooth and dark green and unwilted.

Fennel may be stored in the refrigerator for up to ten days if it is first wrapped in a paper towel or a kitchen towel and then placed in a bag. 

Don’t wash the fennel until just before you want to use it. This will prevent it from becoming bad.

Because it is largely made up of water, you should store fennel in the warmer sections of your refrigerator in order to retain its texture and taste. 

Warmer portions of your refrigerator include the top shelf, a drawer, or even the door of your refrigerator.

While you reach home, detach the stalks and fronds from the bulb if you were fortunate enough to acquire fennel with them still attached when you were shopping for it.
