Origanum x majoricum
'Sweet Marjoram', also known as "Knotted" Marjoram because of its knot-like buds, is an elegant and versatile culinary herb with a milder flavor than its cousin, Oregano. It has a much sweeter flavor, described as "balsam-like". An essential ingredient in your herb gardening efforts. Marjoram plants are among our most popular culinary herb plants.
Sweet Marjoram is a key ingredient in Bouquet Garnis because it pairs well with Parsley, Thyme, Bay and Tarragon for seasoning soups and stews. When adding it to sauces or other hot dishes, wait til the last few minutes of cooking time to toss it in, or it will lose the intensity of its flavor.
Aromatic like other plants in the Oregano family, Ancient Greeks associated sweet marjoram with the love god Aphrodite and it was used to make crowns for newlyweds to inspire love and prosperity.
