Mentha piperita 'Chocolate'
- 'Chocolate' Mint is an herb in the One Earth Edibles line.
- 'Chocolate' Mint performs best in fertile, moist oil, full sun.
- Most mints are very invasive, so plant 'Chocolate' Mint in a bottomless container with several inches of the container above the soil to discourage runners.
- Keep mints separate from each other to discourage cross-pollination hybridization.
Green leaves tinged with bronze give a hint of the delicious chocolatey-mint flavor, like biting into a peppermint patty! Add leaves to hot drinks or desserts.
