About oregano types
I've recently done some research about different oregano types, because I myself was confused by it. I posted a thread here some time before, asking question about this very issue:
well, after a search over the internet, i found this website:
which turned out to be very helpful.
it seems that there are three common types: Origanum heracleoticum(Greek Oregano), Origanum majorna(sweet marjoram) and Origanum vulgare(wild marjoram, common marjoram, etc; seems like this sub-species is very common).
well, for me i bought oregano from different vendors, and they turned out to be quite different both in appearance and taste. and i now know that i have greek(O.heracleoticum) and marjoram(O.majorna) so i'm no longer confused. and now i will start looking for the more common O.vulgare.
don't know if this is accurate, appreciate if someone has some suggestions. also i hope this info. can be helpful to others like me, eager to find out the exact type of their oregano.
