Russian Tarragon, not to be confused with French Tarragon, is slightly inferior as a culinary herb. So why offer it? It’s the only Tarragon which can be grown from seed. The French variety can only be grown from cuttings. The flavor is also known to improve with maturity. Use Tarragon in herbal vinegars, salad dressings and sauces. Find great Tarragon recipes here!
