Blanching Fennel for a Salad?

When, if ever, would you blanche a fennel bulb for a raw, cold, salad? I mean, even if you take off the "tough outer leaves" and cut away the core (like all the recipes say), raw fennel can still be quite tough and not crisp.

Does it depend upon the type of fennel or whether it's male or female?
