CSA mystery item

This came in my CSA box today- the farm is in Middle Tennessee if that helps. I asked my extremely botanically accomplished mother and she had no clue what it was so if y'all do, let me know!

Tarragon for sure. Make white wine tarragon vinegar, bernaise sauce etc.
Chicken tarragon is great also.
Cheers

It does look like tarragon. Eat some and tell us the flavour profile

Looks like Mexican tarragon to me. It is easier to grow in a climate like TN than the French variety. Careful, it has a very pronounced anise scent and flavor. I would suggest cutting the quantity called for in a recipe back a little.

Tarragon?

It looks like it could be tarragon or summer savory. They look quite a bit alike, but tarragon has more of a licorice flavor.

Does it have a smell? It looks like the wilder form or tarragon.

I'm going to guess it's tarragon.

Looks a bit like tarragon. Rub some between your fingers and give it the sniff test.

You are correct! I don't know why that didn't occur to either of us. Thanks so much.
