Artemesia dracunculus 'French'

  • 'French' Tarragon is an herb in the One Earth Edibles line.
  • Resistant to many garden critters, 'French' Tarragon performs best in full sun to part shade with rich, well-drained soil.
  • Frequent trimming for kitchen use will help maintain 'French' Tarragon's bushy habit.

A must-have for the kitchen garden with a distinctive anise flavor, famous as the bright flavor in Tarragon Chicken. Useful seasoning for sauces, eggs, vinegar and salads. A hardy perennial with dark green narrow, fragrant leaves, French Tarragon dies back in the winter.

Interesting Notes:

This is the true culinary tarragon. Do not confuse it with seed-grown Russion Tarragon, which is a flavorless weed.
