History and Origin

 This perennial plant originates from the Steppes of Central Asia. Dracunculus meaning “little dragon”, its name recalls the mystery and legend surrounding dragon’s wort. Indeed, several legends speak of the plant, among other things, as being able to attract favors and as a remedy against snake bites. Around 1000, it was used by the Arabs for its digestive and antispasmodic properties. Today, tarragon is commonly used in the kitchen and grown by gardeners. It pleasantly cheers up sauces and fish meals.
