(Origanum syriacum) We offer seeds from Israel for this plant that grows wild in Israel, Jordan and surrounding areas. Doubtless a common herb in Bible times, and still one of the tastiest! It has great flavor that blends hints of Oregano, Thyme and Marjoram. A favorite.

What are the pros? Grows quickly and profusely

What are the cons? takes over the herb garden

Review:

I started the seeds on the patio until they were big enough to transplant into the raised bed. They have grown tall flowers and are crowding out my basil. It is an easy herb with a strong smell and taste of lemon and pepper. I put it directly in salads to add complexity of flavor. That being said, this is not the "Zaatar" we eat fresh in Lebanon as a salad with pomegranate molasses and onions. Either way, I love herbs that grow well and are highly edible - this fits the bill! Also drought tolerant once established.

What are the pros? flavor, resilient to cold temp

What are the cons? grows small

Review:

This plant is great. Flavor is amazing-think medicinal lemon/pine/oregano delicious! Hardens over winter. I even dug up the root systems when I moved and transplanted to the new garden. You would have never guessed it didn't originate from it's new location. Hardy but small. Color is really neat too. Must have!

What are the pros? My grandmother plants this

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

This has been growing in Lebanon, Jordan, and in Syria for hundreds of years and is eaten fresh and dried. It's used in a dried mix with sesame seeds, sumac, mixed with olive oil on dough, similar to a pizza. It's great in fresh salad with sumac, tomato's, white onions, olive oil,garlic and a pinch of salt. When planting remember it doesn't like to much water.
