Fantastic flavor! The Late & Broad Epazote (Dysphania ambrosoioides 'Late&Broad') blooms later, and features broader, thicker leaves so you get more flavor per plant than any other! Long, toothy bright green leaves fill out along these tall-reaching stems and are pungent and full of flavor!

Featuring a more compact growing habit, and denser branching for higher yields, you’ll get more bang for your buck without sacrificing precious garden space! Commonly used in cooking and in traditional medicine, Epazote may produce yellow spires of blooms for pollinators and seeds if you don’t deadhead. Though it is recommended to pinch these back for more branching and culinary leaves.

Late & Broad flowers later and is slower to bolt in the heat. Thriving in hot growing zones where it may come back after a mild winter. Keep pinched back to encourage more branching and foliage! Best used fresh, but the foliage can be dried for later use.

Planting and Application:

Epazote is a Mexican culinary herb adding a deep and very aromatic flavor to different dishes. The strongly flavored leaves are used in teas and many Mexican dishes like Frijoles de Olla and Quesadillas among other culinary delights! It’s said the herb helps with gas, so it’s no surprise it’s used to flavor many bean dishes!

Late & Broad loves heat and tropical weather, so for most of the U.S., it is grown as more of an annual herb. Doing well in any sunny porch or patio planter, these thrive in herb gardens, kitchen and vegetable gardens, as well as among sun-drenched perennial beds.

  • Broader Toothy Long Leaves
