Details

If it smells like Anise and is related to wormwood it must be--tarragon? Commonly referred to as "dragon herb,"--and "King of Herbs" by the French--this perennial boasts a strong flavor (where too much can be a little overpowering) that adds a nice zip to all different types of hearty, savory dishes. Tarragon's strong presence makes it a nice choice for infused oils and vinegars, and for cold-weather soups. The plant itself grows a few feet, with spindly leaves dotting the stems. This variety is Russian Tarragon. French Tarragon is difficult to grow from seed.
