DESCRIPTION

Cuban Oregano, Tropical Oregano, Mexican Mint, Plectranthus amboinicus

Cuban Oregano is a semi-succulent perennial plant in the mint family, Lamiaceae, with a pungent oregano-like flavor and odor. It grows abundantly and has tender, juice-filled leaves that can be rubbed on the skin to deter mosquitos and pathogens.

Similar in profile to Oregano (Zaatar), it carries a pungent aroma and strong medicinal qualities.
