Mint-Apple Herb is a perennial mint grown as a culinary herb and attractive ground cover. Fans will love its versatile sweet flavor as an addition to teas, mint jellies, couscous, fruit salads and mixed drinks. Apple Mint actually has a pronounced apple-spearmint fragrance. It produces round, wrinkled, furry leaves topped by feathery spikes of light lilac flower heads. It can be a somewhat invasive spreader if not controlled. Dried leaves retain their scent and are an excellent room freshener.

Comment: When I lived back home (UK), my neighbor grew this outside her back door at the bottom of a rain gutter. Several times a week we had apple mint sandwiches! I will order this for next year.
"Quality and quantity!"

Comment: I am very pleased with the apple mint that we received. Last year I bought some from a certain big chain store, the small amount of mint never grew to be as large and of nice quality that I just received in the mail. Wonderful and tasty already a week in and flourishing.

Comment: Received this plant recently. Arrived in great shape along with several others. I planted it in a 50 50 mix of potting soil and peat moss and it's growing like a charm. Aroma and flavor get a 5/5. Primarily, I use it for mojitos (fantastic) but its also a great compliment to some of the morroccan style dishes i cook on occasion. Highly recommended as is garden harvest in general.
"Apple-y and minty"

Comment: The Mint Apple herb is a good contrast to spearmint.
