Staff favorite pungent herb! Epazote is a Nahuatl (Aztec) word for "skunk sweat", which some may associate with its aroma! Others find its strong scent very pleasant. Red leafed variety of epazote. Use in soups, salads, chilli. Very aromatic, and quite unique, grow anywhere as an annual. Self seeds readily. Known for its use in bean dishes to reduce "wind". Will turn a deep reddish purple in sunlight, though baby sprouts start out green.
