Oregano vulgare

The cornerstone of Greek and Italian dishes. Oregano goes well with beans and vegetables. 

Oregano is a versatile herb that can be used in many different ways, not only as a delicious topping to sprinkle on pizza. Oregano gives a warm peppery kick to casseroles, stews and pasta dishes. Crush oregano leaves slightly to release the essential oils. 

The name ‘oregano’ is said to come from the two Greek words “oros” and “ganos,” meaning the joy of the mountain. An apt name for a powerful and perky herb!

Additional info:

Oregano must be cut for the first time when it is small, about 4-5 cm tall. Remove the top pair of leaves. 

From then on, harvest by cutting the stem just above the pair of leaves below. The plant can be cut a lot at once, as long as a few pairs of leaves remain under the cutting point. This will encourage new branches and thicker growth, producing more leaves to harvest.
