Origanum vulgare 'OV12'
(hardy in zones 5-9)
In the summer of 2012 a remarkable discovery was made on the Richters farm. Aromatic patches of oregano were found growing in amongst the native grasses and herbs in the back field of the farm. These were descendants from a planting more than a quarter century ago when Otto Richter, co-founder of Richters Herbs, planted oregano seeds from a highly aromatic strain from Greece that was not expected to survive the Canadian winter. After the crop was harvested the plants were left to fend for themselves. A few hardy individuals that first winter and then must have eeked out an existence hidden by the taller grasses for more than 25 years! With this discovery we have have a super hardy strain that is intensely aromatic and flavourful -- and is able to elbow out competitors. We are very excited and proud to offer this super hardy oregano!
