    Description Briscoe's Tips
     
    Artemisia dracunculus.

    French Tarragon is the aristocrat of fresh herbs, a chef's best friend, and a must for any "Culinary Herb Garden"! It has a spicy anise flavor that will transform an ordinary dish into a work of art. A little tarragon in chicken salad makes a profound difference! It is wonderful in sauces, soups and meat dishes. Try it with vegetables. It is the choice for any hearty dish. Fresh tarragon is also the traditional ingredient of  'Fines Herbes'.

    Historically, Tarragon was used to soothe stomach aches, toothaches, and cure colic. The belief that it cured snakebites prompted early travelers to carry Tarragon in their boots in case of an emergency. The antibacterial and anti fungal properties to Tarragon are what really make this herb medicinally special. Tagetes 'Mexican Mint Marigold' can also be a great substitution in dishes for Tarragon.

    Tarragon enjoys full sun and well-drained soil. The key to healthy tarragon plants is well-drained soil. Try planting in a porous container where you have more control over the moisture levels. It likes it dry.

    For your own 'Fines Herbes' garden, plant along side thymes and parsleys!


    Features

    Uses: French Tarragon is a key element in French cuisine and is included as one of the main ingredients in "Fines Herbes". Used to preserve and season foods, Tarragon can also be brewed into a tea to help aide digestion.

    Tips: French Tarragon can be a bit overpowering in dishes, so use sparingly for a more delicate flavor. If French tarragon is unavailable, you can substitute with Tagetes 'Mexican Mint Marigold'.

    GREAT HERB PLANT January 2, 2013
    Reviewer: Sallyann Lopes from Greensburg, PA United States  
    Your plants are packed very well, and when they arrive there is no damage at all to them.  That is different that other places I have dealt with.  The French Tarragon plant gave me a lot of delicious eating for quite a while.  Your plants are quite healthy and last a long time in my window herb garden. Thank you.

    Indispensable herb! October 30, 2012
    Reviewer: Jennifer Hoyt from Saint Louis, MO United States  
    My husband and I have an agreement: I grow it and he cooks it. And no kitchen herb garden worth it's salt is complete without tarragon. Perfect for more than French cuisine, fresh tarragon adds a unique flavor without compare. Be sure to overwinter this one on your kitchen windowsill next to the thyme! You'll wonder how you ever cooked without it!

    wonderful mild flavor when used sparingly October 30, 2012
    Reviewer: Diane Smith from Devon, PA United States  
    Although the plant is not large, it is sprouting new branches under my growlight and sunlit window...only a very small portion is needed to season any one dish with this powerful flavor.  I am a personal chef and enjoy having FRESH tarragon at fingertip reach!  I'm so glad I ordered this PLANT from Grower's Exchange!
