Tarragon - Mexican - Tagetes lucida

Tender Perennial grown as Annual Heirloom. Yellow-orange flowers top the branches of this Mexican native from the marigold family. Long leaves are even more flavorful than French Tarragon, with more anise. Use as a spice in egg, chicken, and meat dishes, or with steamed green beans. Grows well in hot climates where French Tarragon does not survive.

Soil and Water: Likes rich, well-drained soil. Thrives with moist soil but will tolerates drought. Grows in soil pH 6.1-7.8.

Planting and Growing: Germinate seeds on a damp paper towel. Direct sow after last frost in spring. This plant re-seeds readily and branches that touch the ground will root.

Harvesting and Storage: Cut fresh leaves throughout spring and summer. Before the first frost, cut all stems to dry.

Did You Know? Try this instead of French Tarragon when making flavored vinegar.
