Tarragon (Artemisia dracunculus) is a perennial plant from the composites family
The species designation "dracunculus" in the botanical name means "little dragon". This would indicate the curled root and the shape of the leaves, which would have something like dragon tongues.
Usually two cultivars or varieties of this species are described: French tarragon (sometimes called German tarragon) and Russian (or wild) tarragon. Both clearly differ in terms of composition, taste and application. French tarragon is sweet and aromatic and has a peppery aniseed flavor, while the Russian tarragon has a bitter, less pronounced flavor. French tarragon probably originated through breeding from Russian tarragon.
