"Oregano" is a spice, which gets its name from two Grek words. Grek word "oras" means mountain and an other greek word "ganos" means "joy". Thats why, meaning of this piquant, warm and slightly bitter spice is called "joy of the mountain"

Oregano, scientific - origanum vulgare, mostly grow up in Mediterranean climate and higher altitudes. This makes Turkey one of the biggest producer of oregano. Turkish oregano needs almost same climate conditions with Turkish laurel bay leaves and Turkish rosemary. Italian oregano and Greek oregano also loves the mediterranean climate.

Oregano has purple flowers and this is the biggest difference between oregano and marjoram varieties and has a strong taste. The taste of oregano is even stronger when it is dried.

Oregano has 3-4% volatile oil. The oil contains phenoles such as carvacrol, thymol (about 75%) and monoterpenes (about 10%) For this reason, oregano is not only prefered in culinary uses, but also in medical uses.

Its even said that, few centuries ago, this unique spice is even used for good luck and good health!

Oregano is packed in 10 kgs kraft bags.
