Normally grown as an annual, sweet marjoram is actual a tender perennial and will survive here in a mild winter or with added protection. 1′ plant with grey-green rounded leaves of enchanting sweet fragrance. In some Middle-eastern countries marjoram is synonymous with oregano. Sweet pine and citrus flavor, and easy to dry for later use.
Cut the tops as the plants begin to flower and dry slowly in the shade. To use fresh, cut often to prevent flowering. Adds flavor to soups, stews and stuffings. Marjoram is used interchangeably with oregano and has a somewhat milder flavor. Great for seasoning soups, stews, dressings and sauce.
