Cultivation and CareEdit
- Oregano can be pinched at the top as soon as it has four sets of secondary leafs 
- You can harvest single oregano leaves, let your Oregano plant get 5” high then pinch off the tips of stems to use for cooking. This will also give you a bushier oregano plant.
- To prolong your harvest you should cut the Oregano flower buds off as they appear.
- To harvest the whole oregano plant cut the stems a few inches above the ground. Harvest Oregano leaves just as flower buds form for best flavor.
How to store OreganoEdit
- Frozen Oregano, either whole or chopped, should be stored in airtight containers, or you can freeze the oregano in ice cube trays covered with water.
- Dried Oregano should be kept in a tightly sealed glass container in a cool, dark and dry place where it will keep fresh for about six months.
- Oregano, fresh, frozen or dried, should be added toward the end of the cooking process because heat can cause a loss of the delicate oregano flavor.
