Botanical Name: Mentha spicata
This is the common culinary mint which when crushed produces a long-lasting and pleasant aroma. Tiny purple flowers are borne on long spikes during late summer. Culinary: Serve with soups, sauces, in stuffings, as a traditional accompaniment to lamb and new potatoes, also good with shellfish. Crystallized leaves are an alternative decoration for cakes, cold desserts and can be used in summer drinks.
We hope you enjoy these mint seeds, just another great example of herb seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!
