Oregano, Mexican $4.00

(Lippia graveolens) Aka Desert Oregano Has a flavor similar to oregano, but is stronger and not as sweet. Perfect for chile, fajitas, tacos, Mexican sauces, and stews, as the spicy-hot flavor combines well with cumin and chile powder. We have been loking for this plant for a long time, and are very happy to have found a source! A must for those that enjoy cooking. Tender Perennial, dig up and bring inside for the winter, or grow as an annual. Limited availability, order early.

This distinct herb is celebrated by Slow Food, which says the following:

Desert Oregano grows wild in the Sonoran and Chihuahuan deserts of North America where it has been traditionally used as a culinary herb to season fish and meats as well as medicinally, as an anti-inflammatory and an anti-vertigo remedy. It is currently hailed as one of the richest sources of antioxidants in the plant world.

As a desert native, Desert Oregano is extremely drought-resilient. Even with such a high tolerance, recent extreme droughts and land access issues have limited its commercial availability. Luckily, the sweet, herbal flavor of Desert Oregano is preserved for the market by the Seri Indians, who handpick this wild herb as part of their hunter-gather tradition. Working with the land, the Seri move cautiously through the desert scrub as to not damage the plants; instead of breaking off the branches they rake the leaves with their fingers ensuring the plantsí ability to reproduce more foliage. The harvest is virtually a pruning process making Desert Oregano a truly sustainable crop.
