Mexican Tarragon

Tagetes lucida

This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List

A plant of North America where it is cultivated as a culinary herb and used in Mexican cooking. This plant is not of the Artemisia family but is in the Marigold family, Tagetes.

Mexican Tarragon has the same taste as the European Tarragon only milder but can be grown more easily in a hot climate. It has a sweet aniseed flavour and makes a delicious tea. The leaves can be added to salads, fruit salads and used in place of French tarragon for fish and chicken dishes. It goes under several common names Mexican Mint Marigold, Texas Marigold, Sweet Mace, Marigold Mint and many variations of those names.

Offered is a packet of  100 seeds complete with Grownotes to assist you in their propagation.

All my seed is posted in bubble wrap protection.
