Mexican tarragon or pericon organic

€2,35 EUR

We have run out of stock for this item.

Pericon is not only beautiful but its leaves can replace tarragon

Ornamental plant native to South America, cousin of the Carnation of India, flowering golden yellow. The foliage has a very pleasant aniseed smell, which can replace tarragon tarragon in soup, sauces, flans... Please note, it is necessary to use less of it than the regular tarragons as if the Mexican tarragon plant is ingested in too large quantities, it is likely to cause hallucinogenic effects. Seek advice from a qualified herbalist or a healthcare professional before use.
