Morphological traits such as growth, shape, and weight, internal structure like order and position of chemical compound and bio-contents such as enzymes, vitamins, and antioxidant activity for normal and irradiated Foeniculum vulgare were studied. The growth of Foeniculum vulgare is affected by exposure to UVC. The volumetrical shape of the Foeniculum vulgare also decreased by exposure to UVC. Continuous increase in enzyme activity, tocopherol content, vitamin C, total phenol content, and antioxidant activity for the Foeniculum vulgare by increased the exposure time to UVC up to 3 hours then declined in the fourth hour.
