Buying Tips

Choose fresh tarragon that has a clean, fresh scent.


Both French and Russian tarragon are available. French tarragon is the more delicate and flavorful of the two and is preferred for cooking.

Both varieties are available in fresh, dried, and powdered forms. Fresh tarragon is more flavorful than the dried herb.
