Italian Oregano Plant
Italian Oregano | Ecologically grown
Origanum syriacum | Annual | Heirloom
Strong spicy flavour, similar to sweet marjoram. It is actually a hybrid of sweet marjoram and oregano (O. majorana x O. vulgare virens) and the mixed parentage makes it a wonderfully versatile herb in the kitchen. Use it like you would oregano — or use it like marjoram! White flowers appear in summer.
Harvesting tip: Harvest when young and tender to eat. Cut the entire plant when coming to bloom just 2” above ground. The plant can be cut 3-5 times during the season.
Storage tip: Keep in a plastic bag in the vegetable section of the fridge for up to 3 days.
