Description

Pineapple Mint is the most attractive plant in the Mentha family. Its variegated cream and green leaves have a light pineapple fragrance.  Mint is very hardy and can be harvested as soon as new growth appears in the spring. Young new growth is the most fragrant and flavorful... but all leaves are edible. Hang small bunches of Variegated Pineapple Mint upside down in a dry, dark, warm area to dry. Leaves can be dried on paper or on screens. Store dried leaves in an air tight container.
