French tarragon is a loose, open perennial growing to about two to three feet tall.  Leaves are dark green, narrow and slightly twisted.  Plant will occasionally produce small, greenish flowers that are sterile.  Leaves have a licorice or anise flavor.

Harvesting

Young stem tips and leaves can be harvested as needed throughout the season.  Because the flavor of tarragon is quickly lost if leaves are dried, it is suggested that this herb be used in the fresh form whenever possible for best flavor.  Tarragon is best dried in a cool, dark well-ventilated location and once dried quickly put into sealed containers. 

Uses

Use in vinegars, oils, marinades and salads.
