Fresh Herb, Chocolate Mint
Mentha x piperita ‘Chocolate

Price: $12.49

Availability: IN STOCK


Just the name of the Chocolate Mint herb brings memories of the legendary Chocolate Mint Girl Scout cookies and Peppermint Patties!  This fast growing plant has flavorful chocolate minty scented leaves that can be freshly crushed for tea, coffee, or a refreshing mint beverage if steeped in boiling water.  Dry leaves are wonderful for flavoring desserts, meringues, pastries, breads, and even ice cream!  Very easy to grow and maintain so it is best grown in a pot to easily contain its natural spreading habit.  Thrives in consistently moist soil.

Harvesting:  Cut off tips of stems and use fresh.  Leaves do not dry well.
