Spice Route Tarragon - the little dragon Artemisia dracunculus

French Tarragon is the most popular variety known for its licorice-anise aroma and its lingering appetite appealing flavour when compared to Russian and Winter Tarragon. Like most herbs, Tarragon is native to the Mediterranean region and its name is derived from the French word 'estrangon' meaning 'little dragon'.

TarragonTarragon from our farms is harvested and dried using a unique process to help retain their characteristic anise-like aroma and tangy taste.

Tarragon is very evident in French cuisine and now commands a liking in most Western and European kitchens. Tarragon is an important herb in salad dressings, fish, chicken and meat dishes and it adds flavour to mayonnaise, butter sauce and dressings.
