Mediterranean Oregano

Oregano is a robust herb that is both complex and strongly aromatic (a bit camphoraceous). There are so many plants that are called oregano that some have even suggested that oregano be considered a flavor rather than a specific species. Nonetheless, in most kitchens there are two types of oregano that are the most often used – the more popular is Origanum vulgare which is a member of the Lamiaceae family (mint) and is commonly known as Mediterranean oregano, true oregano, or Greek oregano. 

Mediterranean Oregano is closely related to Marjoram and is similar in taste. In fact, oregano means marjoram in Spanish. Oregano grows throughout Europe and Asia, Greece, Turkey, Egypt and here in the US in both California and New Mexico. Our Mediterranean Oregano is grown in Turkey.
