A Cook's favorite for use in salad dressings, egg dishes, sauces, and flavoring meat dishes.
Cook's Garden Favorite. Flavors similar to anise, licorice, and fennel, 'French Tarragon' lends a beautifully soft texture to the garden with soft, strappy, narrow green leaves. Tarragon gives great balance to vinegar-infused recipes but be sure to chop well- chewing on full leaves can leave a slight numbness in the mouth as a result of naturally occurring compounds (hydroxy-alpha-sanshool).

Love French tarragonI get French tarragon every year to grow in my herb garden. This is the first summer I have managed to keep it alive all summer. I hope to keep it in the house all winter to use in my cooking.

Healthy Plants, Great FlavorHealthy little plants, carefully packaged arrived at my house in the spring for planting. They matured into lovely, fragrant herbs. Mid-summer I harvested and dried a bunch, and I will get one more harvest this year. I'm in upstate NY, zone 5, so I'm hoping they survive the winter. Plan to cover them with cloches.
