About Mint 'Chocolate'

This mint variety sports purplish-brown stems that contrast nicely with the green leaves and has a delightful fragrance that calls to mind the flavor of a mint chocolate candy. A great choice for cocktails, desserts, and even homemade mint chocolate chip ice cream. Mint plants can tolerate less light than some other herbs and can be planted in full sun to partial shade environments. Mint can quickly take over in a garden or in a pot with other plants (this variety can spread up to 2 feet), so it's best to grow it in a container by itself where its size can be managed. Use Pike Potting Soil for all potted plants. Water regularly and fertilize monthly with Dr. Earth Homegrown organic fertilizer for tomatoes, vegetables, and herbs.
