I've been looking for the translation of BertramKraut or Pertrumkraut.

says Tarragon in German is "fälschlich Bertram" 
or false Bertam.  "The German name Bertram is 
sometimes misapplied to tarragon, but should be 
reserved for Anacyclus pyrethrum (Asteraceae). It 
is an adaptation of the Greek plant name 

Tarragon seems more likely for use in cooking. 
Does anyone have more information on this?
