Origanum majoricum

A delicious culinary herb that is essential to your Italian dishes. If you are herb gardening for flavor, include Italian Oregano in the herb plants you grow.

Italian Oregano is an excellent variety with a strong spicy flavor used in Italian cooking. A native of the Mediterranean region, Oregano was made popular in the United States by returning WWII soldiers who brought their new found love of pizza home with them. Previously not considered the main ingredient in Italian cooking, it was Oregano's bold spicy flavor that reminded Americans of the robust complexity of Italian cuisine.

Along with Parsley and Basil, Oregano is also an aromatic member of the Mint family and is one of the key ingredients that sets Italian food apart from other rich, spicy cuisines.


This oregano works well in the garden or in a beautiful pot or container!
