There are two varieties of Tarragon: French and Russian. French Taragon is much harder to grow, but it is considered far superior in taste. Tarragon is a perennial with thin, glossy green leaves arranged along a thin slightly woody stem. The taste is similar to anise and it is often used to flavor lighter foods such as poultry and eggs.
