Herb of the Week – June 16th 2018

French Tarragon

This week we are featuring French Tarragon for our Herb of the Week.   French Tarragon is a perennial herb that is in the sunflower family.  It grows wild in Europe and North America.  Tarragon had many culinary and medicinal uses, such as it is used to stimulate the appetite, relieve flatulence and colic, cure rheumatism, and relieve toothache.  Chew on a leaf and you will feel a numbness in your tongue.  Tarragon is a sun lover and grows to a height of 18″-24″
