Mexican tarragon is a beautiful, bright green half-hardy perennial herb which is often grown as a substitute for French tarragon. Despite being called ‘tarragon’ the plant is actually a member of the marigold family. The leaves have an anise-like flavour, with the plant producing small, flavoursome, bright yellow flowers. The plant is native to Mexico and Central America and, as such, is suitable for growing in warmer conditions such as indoors on a sunny windowsill, or in a greenhouse or conservatory. Great for flavouring oils and vinegars and for adding distinct flavour to savoury dishes.
