Greek Oregano Seeds

Origanum heracleoticum

This species, commonly known as Greek oregano, is thought to have a cleaner and sharper taste than true oregano. An esential garden herb with a pungent flavor, this perennial bears light green, pointed, oval leaves that are slightly wavy at the edges.

  • Conventional
  • Perennial plant in zones 4-9
  • Plants grow to 7 to 30 inches tall
  • Savory, pungent light green leaves

This variety works for:

  • Fresh eating
  • Dried leaves

Oregano leaves are often more flavorful when used dry than they are fresh. Consider drying bunches of the herb in a dark, well ventilated place over the summer so that you'll be well stocked for winter meals.

You can use oregano in many dishes with tomato sauce such as pizza or lasagna, but you can also experiment by pairing it with grilled meats and fish. Oregano imparts a delicious flavor to mutton or lamb when paired with salt, pepper, and paprika.

Instructions - Sow seeds indoors just beneath surface of soil. Transplant outdoors after danger of frost has passed. Oregano is a perennial warm-season herb, hardy to frost and light freezes. Prefers very well-drained soil.

  • Start Indoors: 6-8 weeks before last frost
  • Germination: 10 Days
  • Plant Outdoors: 12” Apart
  • Light: Full Sun
