(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? 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.

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.

What are the pros? great herb, new flavor to me

What are the cons? can die from watering

Review:

Be careful waterin these seedlings they love dryness and lots of sun. Ours are so extremely hairy and fuzzy compared to oregano but the leaf shape is the same as oregano. Perfect plants used in cooking from 5 seedlings in a med sized container. We made some tasty zaatar salt by drying it in a low oven to infuse the fresh zaatar oregano into some mediterranean sea salt.

What are the pros? Drought and heat tolerant

What are the cons? none

Review:

In the wild it grows in well-drained, sunny slopes that are often quite warm and dry in summer. In AZ, with our extra 15-20 degrees, I try to give it just a bit of shade in mid-summer, but it doesn't seem to mind full blazing sun if given a little more water. Grows a loose, sprawling fuzzy gray-green mat up to 12"-15" high, and I find it self-sows easily, popping up wherever I sprinkled seeds, after just a little cold weather. My daughter, however, can't make it happy in the wet Pacific N'West.
