Mexican tarragon, in a herb garden, flower bed, or container, is an excellent addition to any kitchen supply. Its cheery sunshine yellow flowers brighten any spot in your herb garden. This upright plant is easy to grow unlike French tarragon. You can substitute Mexican tarragon for French tarragon in equal proportions without many people every knowing. It is best to add it at the end of cooking to keep its fresh, spring-like flavour.
