Chocolate MintMentha piperita 18-24" tall. Our favorite mint!
Bright sweet refreshing peppermint-patty flavor is a must-have for any winter dried-herb supply. Freshen your breath, settle your stomach, brighten up fruit desserts, garnish ice cream, flavor your favorite meat dish, or scent soaps and salves. In March and April our hard-working crew devours at least 3 pounds of Andes candies per week! In a healthier turn of events, we grew chocolate mint to enjoy during our tea breaks and to add to our communal hot cocoa pot. Harvest the leaves before it goes to flower.
As with any mint, plant it where you want it forever. Plant in full sun in any decent garden soil. MOFGA-certified organic, grown at Ripley Farm. Some say Z5, although many of us have unstoppable patches in Z4. Maine Grown. (bare-root crowns)
