A Mexican herb that taste like coriander

Pipicha is an unusual herb originating from Mexico, that tastes like coriander. Pipicha leaves are very aromatic, and have a mild coriander flavour with hints of parsley and arugula. Pipicha plants are upright plants that grow up to 48 inches tall. They are also great as ornementals as they produce charming blue flowers with a unusual look. The taste is not very easy to describe so it would be worth trying and see what you think. This plant visually resembles tarragon, but it doesn't taste like tarragon. The Pipicha fresh leaves are used as a table condiment, in meat dishes. It is a staple of Mexican cuisine.
