Description

The Epazote 'Oaxaca Red' is a very rare Mexican wormseed variety with purple leaves.

Once a component of Aztec cooking, the lemon scented epazote leaves and blossoms of this plant still flavour many Mexican bean and rice dishes. In Uruguay it is best known as a fertility control herb.
