What are the pros? Don?t know yet....

What are the cons? Why don?t they grow for me?

Review:

I buy these seeds every year, because we don?t have tarragon here. Germination is sketchy, and the tiny plants just sit there and do nothing! I must be using wrong soil mix, or something..Or are they dayligt sensitive ( Southern hemisphere) .Wish the packet or the catalogue gave more detailed instructions... This is a plant I REALLY would like to have in my garden!

Got these about a month ago and already have small plants. Every seed I planted germinated. I do love this Mexican tarragon. Its very fragrant and the flowers are lovely.

What are the pros? Tasty4tea, dainty, good smell

What are the cons? too few seeds

Review:

I fell in love with these last year, but didn't save seeds. I ordered them again this year, but the germination rate was the pits! Only had 3 plants germinate with direct sow in the spring, MUCH fewer than I had in 2017. Maybe it was a bad batch! :-/ The plants that have come up, though, smelled great (even though they seemed to be blooming late as well) and the little yellow flowers were a lovely treasure added to the butterfly garden. I was also disappointed that so few seeds came in the package this time; I would love to see these available in a 1/4oz package, or something larger than what was available in 2018. I would grow a HUGE patch of this for tea, or possibly a tarragon substitute? (they smell very similar to me) If you order them, get a MINIMUM of 2 packages--you won't regret it!

Review:

Note that is is not French tarragon, despite the title above. The Latin name is accurate. I live in a warm climate where Mexican tarragon grows as a perennial, and it has far outperformed the standard French tarragon that I've also grown. It has a nice anise-like flavor to the leaves, with a bit of sourness as well, and the flowers are almost candy-like with a strong punch of fennel flavor. It has been no trouble to grow and I've added more of it this year. The plant grew as a slender stalk for about 8 months before branching out. I trimmed it back hard and now have a bushy plant about 18" across. It's been in flower almost constantly, taking a break between November and February. I eat it dice up with fruits of greens, and have ground it in a mortar and pestle and used it in a vinaigrette. An easy and productive perennial in my climate, with an interesting flavor.
