Mentha x piperita f. citrata 'Chocolate'

For sale by Jeremy Chadwick

This grower is fairly sure of this plant identification.

Chocolate coloured, strong peppermint scent & flavour (some would say after-dinner mint chocolate, but some say Chocolate Cosmos is chocolate scented... I wouldn't!). Combine with Mentha suaveolens (apple mint, also available) for the perfect mint tea (or Mojito - rum and lime not available from this seller!)
