Description

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.

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