A pretty brown/purple leafed mint plant with a lovely chocolate fragrance to it. Best grown in a container. Hardy perennial.

Chocolate Mint – Organic

Bright sweet refreshing peppermint-patty flavor is a must-have for any winter dried-herb supply. Freshen your breath, settle your stomach, brighten up fruit desserts, garnish ice cream, flavor your favorite meat dish, or scent soaps and salves. In March and April our hard-working crew used to devour at least 3 pounds of Andes candies per week! In a healthier turn of events, we grew chocolate mint to enjoy during our tea breaks and to add to our communal hot cocoa pot. Harvest the leaves before it goes to flower.

As with any mint, plant it where you want it forever. Plant in full sun in any decent garden soil. MOFGA-certified organic, grown at Ripley Farm. Some say Z5, although many of us have unstoppable patches in Z4. Maine Grown. (bare-root crowns)

Additional Information

Herbaceous Medicinals

These plants have long histories of traditional medicinal use. It’s up to you to educate yourself about the safety and efficacy of using plants for medicinal purposes. The statements in our catalog regarding traditional medicinal uses of plants have not been evaluated by the FDA. The plants we sell are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
Plants may take a year or more to establish before they flower; roots often take several years to reach harvestable maturity.

When you receive your order, open the bags and check the stock. Roots and crowns should be firm and pliable. If they are slightly dry, add a little water or, if they are going to be potted up soon, wet the roots. Generally, a little surface mold is harmless and will not affect the plant’s future performance. If you cannot pot them up immediately, store them in a cool (35–40°) location for a short time.

Do not plant bare-root perennial plant crowns directly outdoors.

Pot up the rootstock using well-drained potting mix in a deep 6″ pot or a 1-gallon container. Avoid coiling the roots in under-sized containers.
Grow newly potted perennials for a few weeks in a protected location in indirect light at 50–60°. Wet and/or cold conditions for an extended period may cause rotting.
Transplant outside once they show some top growth and the danger of frost has passed.
