Origanum marjorna 'Aureum'
About the Marjoram 'Family': A perennial herb from the Lamiaceae family which is native to the Mediterranean. Marjoram has smooth, slightly hairy, even leaves which are usually a rich green in colour and are very aromatic. The leaves have a subtle, sweet flavour similar to Oregano but often softer and less spicy. Marjoram has many culinary uses from flavouring meat and fish dishes to making a herbal tea and is used widely in Greek and Italian cuisines. The leaves are usually added towards the end of cooking a dish as heating them for too long will cook the flavour away.
