Our Featured Herb is Mexican Tarragon
Tagetes lucida
Mexican tarragon grows very well in our hill country climate and soil. It is a beautiful landscape plant and the deer haven't touched mine! Mexican tarragon is our substitute for French tarragon in recipes as it has a similar anise-like flavor. Even so, it is not related to French tarragon but to the common marigold. Be sure to visit the HSA website http://www.herbsociety.org to learn more about Mexican tarragon and to get tips and recipes contributed by our own Henry Flowers!
