Care & Harvest

Bundle of Tarragon on a white background

🌱 Germination: Germination and true leaf growth can be slow. If your yCube has sprouted but true leaves have not formed, or if it has sprouted but roots are not visible after 14 days since you first saw it sprout, add the yCube to your Gardyn with plant food in it to help kick start its next phase of growth!

💡Temperature: Prefers warmer temperatures (70-85°F).

✂️ Pruning: Remove leaves with brown spots if they appear. Check the roots monthly and trim any that are brown or extending past the yPod. Pinch the growing branch tips to encourage bushier growth, and pinch away flowers as they appear – they’re edible!

🔎 Plant Health: Aphids are a common pest, but you can use our prevention tricks to keep them at bay!

🌿 Harvest: Harvesting frequently helps prolong the plant’s life. Once the plant reaches 8 inches tall, you can begin pinching off larger, individual leaves, or use clean shears to cut stems above growth nodes. Leave ⅓ of the plant to ensure continued growth. To harvest flowers, pinch off at their base. To dry the plant for long-term storage, tie fresh-cut branches together and hang-dry until the branches snap instead of bending before stripping off the leaves and flowers.

Quick Facts

Also known as Winter Tarragon, Yerba Anis, Mexican Marigold, African Marigold, and Sweet Mace, this cousin of the marigold is native to Mexico and Central America. Tarragon is said to have been used as a ritual incense by the Aztecs and as a key ingredient in a medicinal tea used by the Huichol.

The toothed, thin leaves share the flavor of traditional French tarragon with a pleasant anise scent. Tarragon is believed to have anti-nausea, anti-fungal, and antibacterial properties, and the flowers are edible too.

Use fresh or dried Tarragon leaves and flowers to season poultry, seafood, and vegetables, or to pair with soft cheeses. The flavor pairs especially well with lemon, pear, and black pepper. You can also steep the leaves or flowers into a refreshing herbal tea.
