  Dysphania ambrosoides

Native to Central and South America ,this Mexican herb is easy to grow and hard to describe. The flavor is very fresh with a decided edge and aftertaste. Used in a variety of sauces, particularly with black beans, corn, mustard and seafood dishes. This herb is known as the "bean herb" as using just two sprigs effectively combats flatulence, aiding digestion with its carminative effect. A couple of specimens is probably enough for a small garden, use only the leaves, fresh or dried, sparingly. Harvest around 50-55 days.   300 seeds

Wonderful herb!

Grows easily and abundantly even here in New England. Dried herb retains flavor for a couple of years. Zesty, savory flavor for any dish with beans. Hope it's back in stock soon. We're finally running low in the kitchen.
