HERBALIST’S CORNER – A RARE MEDICINAL HERB – ARTEMISIA DRANUNCULUS – RUSSIAN TARRAGON – RARER TARRAGON THAN THE FRENCH, FASTER GROWER AND BETTER FOR SALADS AND HAS A WIDE RANGE OF MEDICINAL USES. ONCE IT’S GONE THIS POST WILL BE CLOSED SO GRAB IT NOW!

French tarragon vs Russian tarragon. French and Russian tarragon look alike, the Russian type seems to have taller more upright growth and its leaves are narrower.

Russian tarragon (Artemisia dracunculoides) has a bit stronger flavour and grassier tone.
The test is crushing a leaf between your fingers to release the aroma of this culinary herb.
Being not as strongly aromatic as its French cousin, Russian tarragon produces many more leaves from early spring onwards that are mild and good in salads and cooked food.
Remember that Russian tarragon loses what flavour it has as it ages so once picked, cook it quickly. The young stems in early spring can be cooked as an asparagus substitute.
The French tarragon is propagated only by root division, whereas the Russian one can be grown from seeds.

Medicinal Value of Russian Tarragon:
According to WebMD, you can use tarragon for:
Treating digestion problems
Aiding with poor appetite
Helping with water retention
Starts Menstruation, and
Lastly, helps with sleep.

Method:
You can start your seeds under cover in the spring to early summer.

Germination should occur in 2 weeks.

You can transplant your seedlings into your garden when they are 2.5cm to 5cm tall and after all danger of frost has passed.

For best flavour, harvest the leaves before the plant blooms.

You can harvest small amounts of the leaves throughout the growing season.

New leaves will grow back to replace them.

In the Autumn, you can uproot the entire plant and hang it to dry for use during the winter.

 

However, be cautious when using either Tarragons if you have an allergy to ragweed, daisies, or marigolds since the Tarragon plant is in the same family (Asteraceae/Compositae family.)
In addition, both Tarragons may slow blood clotting. According to WebMD, stop using both Tarragons at least 2 weeks before surgery since it may prolong bleeding before and after surgery.
