Marjorana hortensis Marjoram is a very ancient herb. The early Greeks would weave Marjoram into funeral wreaths and planted it on graves. This symbolized their loved one’s happiness in life and beyond. Of the many varieties available, sweet Marjoram sets the standard for flavor. Marjoram is sometimes confused with Oregano as both are in the mint family. “Wild Marjoram” is another name for Oregano. When cooked, sweet marjoram has a very delicate flavor, so it should be added near the end of cooking to retain as much flavor as possible. There is a bolder flavored marjoram that is rarely found in the United States but can be found throughout the Mediterranean called Pot Marjoram.
