Strong spicy flavour, similar to sweet marjoram. It is actually a hybrid of sweet marjoram and oregano (O. majorana x O. vulgare virens) and the mixed parentage makes it a wonderfully versatile herb in the kitchen. Use it like you would oregano -- or use it like marjoram! White flowers appear in summer. Ht. 45-60cm/18-24in.
