Herb of the Week – June 23rd

Chocolate Mint

Chocolate Mint smells and tastes amazing, like an after-dinner mint! It is great for recipes calling for a chocolate and minty flavor.  Mint likes full sun and grows 12-24″ tall, though it can be invasive.  It does great in planters.  Regular pinching/trimming helps keep mint healthy and full.  This herb is excellent in baked good and hot or cold beverages.  It is also a great insect repellent.
