Details

Marjoram's flavor is similar to that of oregano, but it is definitely more sweet, and it has stronger, clearer tones of lemon and pine (though it doesn't taste much like either of these). It rings like a bell when sprinkled into a salad with parsley, basil, and other herbs; it's also terrific on top of a pilaf or diced finely and thrown on any main dish just before serving.

How to Grow

Grow marjoram similar to oregano, but use more care. It is a bit more delicate and not as hearty. Start seeds indoors 8 weeks before last frost. Transplant outdoors when plants are 3" high. Marjoram is a Mediterranean herb, it enjoys full sun, well drained soil and moderate water. Keep pruned and do not let it flower to encourage more leaf growth and maintain peak flavor. Does extremely well in containers.
