Regular price $12.00

Please read order & shipping information at the bottom.

 

Chocolate Mint is a wonderful, easy to grow addition to the garden! The chocolate mint plant adds subtle minty chocolate flavor to any recipe. There are a lot of ways to enjoy your this herb: you can add it to a variety of salads, cocktails, savory dishes, milkshakes, ice cream, coffee, or tea. And since it’s such a fragrant herb, why not add it to potpourri, or use the plant as a natural pesticide against mice, ants, mosquitoes, and more.

This cultivar has a dark look compared to the bright leaves of peppermint. It grows beautiful deep green leaves with purple undersides and dark stems, and is hardy in Zones 3-9. As its Latin name Mentha × piperita f. citrata ‘Chocolate’ suggests, this plant is a cultivar of peppermint, which was selected from a cross between watermint, M. aquatica, and M. spicata, or spearmint.
