Tarragon... & cleverly disguised impostors
Hello- Daisy Duckworth, I'm hoping especially for your sage (ooh, sorry) herbal wisdom, but others please chime in as well.
I planted tarragon last year- I coulda sworn it was French, but I don't remember where I got it and what the label said. Anyway, used it in cooking last summer and it sure tasted like tarragon, but this spring as I'm beginning to harvest some, well, it doesn't taste at all like tarragon!
So I got snookered, and it isn't real French tarragon, right?
And, is this impostor plant good for anything else but decoration? I don't necessarily want to pull it out (I mean, it isn't the plant's fault that it isn't French tarragon)- but is it worth it to just grow it as a nice looking perennial?
