Different varieties are easy to grow ― and tasty, too
Tastes like a peppermint patty. Fun to nibble and good for warm tea ― or add to ice cream.
Pleasant fragrance. Texture a bit rough for eating, but fun garnish for cold drinks and berried desserts.
Mild fruity-spearmint flavor. The traditional choice for mojitos and mint julep. Also good added to lemonade or iced tea.
Strong spearmint and fruit fragrance. Good choice for tabbouleh or raita (Indian yogurt salad).
Elements of both spearmint and peppermint in flavor and fragrance. Wonderful in salads. Also makes a good tea.
