Marjoram Organic - 0.2g (~480 seeds)

Also called sweet marjoram, its flavor is considered milder but more complex than its relative, oregano. Some describe the flavor as having a hint of balsam. A very popular ingredient in German sausage and herb breads. Fun folklore: Legend has it that if you touch marjoram before bedtime, you will dream of your future spouse. Perennial in USDA zones 9 and 10; usually grown as an annual. Drought tolerant and deer resistant.
