French thyme is a close cousin to English thyme. The leaves of French thyme are narrower and are distinctly grayer. It is sweeter than English thyme and has a slightly more pungent foliage. I find it indispensable in French cooking. There is almost no stew, soup, or ragout that does not call for a pinch or two. French thyme is an excellent culinary thyme that should be included in every garden plan.
