Description

A classic cooking spearmint, used for taboulleh, salads, soups. Large growing leaves are very vigorous. This is an excellent choice for classic drink recipes, such as mint juleps or mojitos. Keep planted in a container away from the garden to prevent it from getting loose! Prune plants back frequently to maintain flavor, fertilize lightly at least once a month in containers, and plant in some afternoon shade.
