ABOUT OREGANO

With the name Oregano or Origanum we mean the flowering tops of the perennial herb Origanum vulgaris.
The origin of the name 'Oregano' comes from ancient Greece. It is a compound from the Greek words 'oros' (mountain) and 'ganos' (joy), i.e. 'joy of the mountain', probably due to the fact that the oregano roots prohibit the washing of the mountain slopes by rain or just by its fantastic smell.
In any case, those who have visited Greece, where oregano covers the hillsides and scents the summer air, would probably agree with this name.
Origanum vulgaris grows exclusively to the zone containing the whole Mediterranean Basin and reaching to Central Asia.


Oregano
Origanum vulgaris, often known as Wild Marjoram, is an extremely invasive plant with a pink flower. Its most important subdivision is the so-called Greek regano (Origanum heracleoticum).
Greek Oregano is one spicy herb and is by far the best oregano in the world. Greek Oregano has a flavour so intense it numbs the end of the tongue when fresh. Like all culinary oreganos, its flower is white. It has coarse, ovate, fuzzy leaves and grows up to 40cm high in bloom. It is grown in light, fairly rich, well-drained soil with pH 7.0-8.0. Use to season fish, meats, salads, sauces, and stews it has medicinal properties as well.
