Tarragon

Appearance 外觀

筆直或叢生狀。葉子光滑,呈鮮綠色、披針形,長度約3寸。晚夏時一堆堆小金黃色花序頭於莖尾端出現,各花序頭直徑約半寸。

May be fairly upright or appear bushy. Shiny medium-green leaves are lanceolate with length of around 3 inches. Clusters of small golden yellow flower heads with diameter around 0.5 inches appear at ends of stems in late summer.

Growing Condition 生長條件

全日照或半日照,多年生。喜歡濕潤、疏水、中性土壤。耐旱、耐熱。接觸到土壤的莖會生根,讓植物擴散。

Full sun or partial sun, perennial. Prefers moist, well-draining neutral soil. Drought and heat tolerant. Stems that touch the soil will take root, making the plant spread.

Uses 用途

墨西哥龍蒿味似八角,可用以代替不耐熱的法國龍蒿。龍蒿葉子可加入炒/煎蛋、雞肉、魚肉、醬料中。

Mexican tarragon's anise-like flavour makes it a substitute for French tarragon, which wilts at warm temperatures. Add leaves to scrambled or fried eggs, chicken, fish, sauces.
