Epazote is a piece of living history. Native to Central and South America, this herb was prized by the Aztec culture for culinary and medicinal uses. Try growing epazote plants in your garden. Epazote adds a distinct flavor to Mexican dishes and is a staple ingredient in bean dishes, both for its taste and its anti-flatulent properties. Like cilantro, epazote has a fragrance and flavor that folks either love. Leaves have an aroma that seems to smell differently to different people. It's been described as having tones of lemon, savory ,and mint. Despite the sometimes odd fragrance, the unique flavor makes epazote an ingredient that can't be duplicated or replaced in recipes.
Soil, Planting, And Care
Epazote is native to tropical climes. In North America, plants are annual in zones 2 to 7 and perennial in warmer zones, typically growing 2 to 4 feet tall. In all regions, you can grow epazote in a container, bringing it indoors for winter in coldest climes. Plant epazote outdoors in spring after all danger of frost has passed and when night temperatures are consistently above 50 degrees F. Place plants in full sun in average, well-drained soil. Drainage is important; don't place where roots will sit in water. Leaves develop best flavor in full sun.
Epazote doesnât usually have pest problems; the aromatic leaves tend to repel insects. Some gardeners report that crushing and scattering leaves acts as ant repellent.
Harvest And Storage
Harvest leaves at any point after plants are established. Pick leaves in the morning, after dew dries. Air dry leaves on screens or gather stems in bunches and hang upside down.
