Huacatay - Peruvian Black Mint - This plant Tagetes minuta is actually a marigold and not a mint, and I love the way Huacatay rolls off the tongue. Complex herbal aromas coupled with a multifarious flavor profile will make most people stop in their tracks. I have just started to scratch the surface of this awesome herb and so happy that I can off the seeds. I can’t wait to see what the limits are for this herb and what people will do with it. We start it indoors about 8 weeks before the last frost and transplant soon after. The plant can grow 3 or 4 feet tall I have seen some in a friend's garden that was 5 feet tall.
