Origanum syriacum 'Cleopatra'
Uses: Culinary/Medicinal Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 8-10)
When to Sow: Spring/Anytime Ease of Germination: Easy
A 2015 award winner for its uniformity, flavour, aroma and yield. “Cleopatra” is a low spreader, with silver haired, soft green leaves. Leaves are larger, and milder in flavour than our standard zaatar. Excellent for Mediterranean-style soups and sauces. Cleopatra is easy to grow, and a good choice for early indoor seed starters. Sow in well-draining soil. Ht 5-6in (12-15cm). Zaatar is staple culinary herb in the Middle East. It gives life to hummus, flatbreads, yogurts, dips, and soups. Often mixed with olive oil, it is brushed over traditional flatbreads. The flavour is reminiscent of thyme, oregano and marjoram. Each region has its own version of zaatar: in some areas it is a blend of herbs and spices while in others it is just one herb from among several varieties depending on the region. This zaatar is from Israel where it is popular among both Arabs and Jews. The aroma is truly divine and revered for carvacrol rich oils, a powerful antiseptic. Aromatic leaves can be dried and used for potpourri. Prefers sandy, well-draining soil in full sun. Ht 5-6in (12-15cm).
