(Origanum syriaca) 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.

Review:

I wanted to take a risk this year. I read all of the reviews for this plant and knew I had to give it a try. I didn’t stratify it or do anything fancy. I just sprinkled to small amount of seeds equally over the top of moist soil. Good seed starting soil of course. Then I misted and it came up in a week. Only a few seedlings died on the way. (Very good!) In the end my plants were perfect and ready to be planted outside. They taste absolutely amazing!!! I want to say don’t listen to the other people who say germinate is very difficult, but there’s a possibility I got lucky. Who knows.

Review:

My plants are now 3 years-old. I had no problem starting them from seed in April, they turned out to be much less tricky than say, Rosemary. I transplanted them outdoors in June, they were still tiny. They grew just fine (I have loamy clay soil). I made sure I watered them regularly during their first summer (as we have dry summers here). They survived their first winter despite the temperature staying below 32F for 2 weeks. The aerial parts froze and died but new growth appeared right after in late winter/early spring. I'm glad I have these, they are superb and are very versatile in the kitchen. Once you have a mature plant you can easily propagate it with cuttings.

Review:

I know it's something I'm doing wrong but I haven't got a clue what. They ARE tricky to germinate (you have to give them tiny spritzes frequently and make sure they never stay too wet) but I got all but one to germinate in my second year of trying this (first year I only got two). The first year I had used ordinary potting soil (the same I use for my other plants) and the two I had died two weeks later after doing nothing. the second year I mixed some sand in to help them drain better and watched very carefully that they didn't get too wet or dry out completely.... That got me ONE that lived the four weeks till transplanting. It was small and not vigorous, but its color was ok so I had hope. I transplanted it pot and all into a well-drained planter that I then hardened bit-by-bit to the outdoors. It didn't grow but it showed no problems so I assumed it was putting down roots. Once finally outside permanently it grew really fast for a week and then stopped and did nothing else. :'(

What are the pros? Flavor complexity

What are the cons? Late starter

Review:

This is our family's top herb choice for roast chicken, any tomato-based dish, and yummy Italian breads. The flavor is as described on the website and never found that flavor with any other type of oregano. We use it in place of Italian seasoning most of the time. We have grown the Zaatar Oregano for several years now, and our best success comes in planting a little later in the growing season, once it heats up a bit. This plant seems to love the full heat of our greenhouse. We keep it on the east wall so it is protected a bit from late day summer sun. We water it lightly almost every day. From one seed packet, we have about twelve very full 8" pots growing right now. I harvest off every pot throughout the summer and dry what's left at end of season.
