Zaatar Seeds Organic
Our Home Farm Herbery Zaatar Seed produces a woody perennial native to the Middle East. This is a spicy smelling and tasting oregano-like herb that is the keystone herb in the condiment "Zaatar," which is a delightful combination spice used quite frequently with pita, garlic and olive oil.
This plant prefers full sun and dry to mesic soils. Sow seed in the spring, in pots or flats or directly in the garden. Traditionally used in a Middle Eastern seasoning mixture with olive oil, garlic, salt and other herbs and spices.
You mix the dried and powdered herb with various other ingredients--garlic, salt, olive oil, crushed sumac seeds, etc and use it on bread. It is quite delicious and habit forming in a good way. Zaatar is one of the sources of the antiseptic essential oil known as carvacrol, which (along with other terpenoids such as thymol) inhibits several kinds of nasty bacteria (e.g. Pseudomonas aeruginosa) by eroding the bacterial cell wall. Plant prefers full sun and sandy, fast-draining soil. This seed makes an abundant crop of leaves in the first growing season. Make sure to harvest in the first year of growth as the overwintering of this plant is never a sure thing.
