Origanum Vulgare seeds.
Oregano originates from the Mediterranean and is closely related to marjoram. Its pungency is in direct proportion to the amount of sun it receives.
There are over 40 species of oregano but the essential oil produced from Origanum vulgare is considered to be the most therapeutically beneficial.
For the best flavor, add oregano in the last few minutes of cooking. The flavor can become bitter if cooked more than 30 minutes. Add it to salads, casseroles, soups, sauces, pates and poultry dishes.
Dried oregano is especially good with tomatoes, beans, eggplant, zucchini and rice dishes such as pilaf and risotto.
The plant demands a well-drained soil in full sun. Plant seeds in warm soil in late spring or in pots or seed trays under glass in mid-spring.
Plants can be moved outdoors when the temperatures are expected to remain above 45 degrees.
Oregano is best treated as an annual in cold climates where it will not overwinter well.
When grown as a perennial, roots should be divided every 3 years for best growth and flavor.
