(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.

What are the pros? I really want to grow it.

What are the cons? Weak, low germination

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. :'(

Our Familys Favorite Herb
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

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.

What are the pros? Exactly like from Lebanon

What are the cons? Low germination rate

Review:

We started these seeds in our professional greenhouse. And only had 10 seeds germinate from the whole packeT. Other then that I am extremely happy with this product. We had been given another packet from another company and they all started.

What are the pros? Like the one in Morocco

What are the cons? None

Review:

It was easy to grow, We planted it in a newly created rock garden during a very wet summer so the soil was a bit to rich and too wet for it to develop much taste yet. However, what it tasted like was very promising and we're sure next season it'll be just right after the excess nutrient have leached out. Great herb. My wife uses it liberally, finely chopped and added in Moroccan flat bread dough cooked in a dry cast-iron pan. It's delicious.
