EPAZOTE / Wormseed / Paico / Mexican Tea

Product Description

Epazote

Dysphania ambrosioides / Chenopodium ambrosioides

Approx 100 seeds

This is a tall (1.2m) annual plant, grown for its pungently flavoured leaves. Common in Mexican dishes, the leaves are said to have a unique flavour somewhere between anise, tarragon, savoury, citrus and mint. The plant is beelived to have many medicinal qualities as well - most notable the ability to reduce gas associated with eating beans and so it is commonly used as a garnish with bean dishes. It has also been linked to treating malaria, asthma, internal parasites and hysteria.
It is also a useful companion plant - the strong odour is said to mask the smell of more vulnerable plants to pest insects, so planting in amongst the garden bed can reduce insect issues.

Sow in Spring after last frost

Best started using the indoor seedling tray method - sow on the surface of premium potting mix and keep at 20-23 degrees C. Keep moist at all times using a misting gun and germination will occur within 20 days. Transplant when seedlings are strong enough to survive the shock ~ 8-10cm tall.
