   Introduction

Oregano is a warm and aromatic yet slightly bitter herb in the mint family. Good quality oregano has a pungency that numbs the tongue. The best quality oregano is grown in a warm, dry climate. The name is derived from the Greek, meaning "mountain of joy". The Greeks used the leaves as a poultice for aching muscles, and the Romans used it for scorpion and spider bites. Sunlight encourages the concentration of the essential oils that give oregano its flavor.


   Description

 

Oregano is a perennial growing to 20 inches, with pink flowers and spade-shaped, olive-green leaves. It prefers a hot, relatively dry climate, but will do well in other environments. To cultivate, it should be planted in early spring, in fairly dry soil, with full sun. The plants should be spaced 12 inches apart. Use oregano in Spanish, Italian and Mexican cooking.
