True Greek Oregano
Dark green leaves and white flowers exude that bold, unmistakable aroma. Always sweetly aromatic and flavorful, one whiff or taste of fresh oregano will immediately make you wonder why you put up with the bland dried commercial stuff for so long.
Easy to start from seed, may take a bit of time to get established but will live for several seasons or longer with minimal needs. Authentic Greek Oregano is the most pungent and flavorful of the oregano's. Very hard to find, yet sought for its culinary and medicinal potency.
In Greece bridal couples are crowned with it as a symbol of happiness.
Oregano is often used in many soups and pasta sauces. However, oregano is most widely recognized as the “special herb” which turns bland pizza sauce into real pizza sauce. Holds flavor in cooking. Due to its high levels of an antiseptic called carvacrol, oregano acts as a bacterial inhibitor and an effective first-aid treatment for insect, spider, and even snake bites. Tea is used for indigestion and coughs, with the oil used for toothaches.
Bees and beneficial insects LOVE it.

As an Italian it pains me to admit this Greek oregano is the absolute strongest, delicious, aromatic oregano I have ever tasted. The best thing about it for me, is on Christmas I can unbury this from the snow and it is still green and ready to make my lasagna sauce. I can not boast enough about this oregano. It has ruined me for every other oregano. Nothing else comes close. Also the only oregano to maintain full flavor on drying. The store kind will taste like dirt after you've tried True Greek Oregano.
