Mexican Mint (Tagetes Lucida) - Growing Mexican Mint seeds is very rewarding! In the herb garden, it is highly ornamental with a profusion of small yellow flowers that bloom in late summer. As a kitchen herb, it has a scent of tarragon and a licorice-anise flavor that is a great seasoning for fish or chicken and the leaves are nice in tossed green salads. Mexican Mint also is called Mexican Mint Marigold because it is related to the familiar bedding plants, marigolds. Other names for it are Mexican Tarragon, Winter Tarragon, Sweet Mace, and Spanish Tarragon. The herb plant thrives it hot humid climates where French tarragon does not perform well.
