MENTHA

HERE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE MANY MINTS WE HAVE AT PENBORN

                                                                                              

grapefruit mint...... very nice in a fruit salad or to 'spice  up' a citrus drink

 

 

Mentha aquatica sterile male forms of this mint make some of the best flavours...

Take a look at the x piperita mints.....many of which have been misidentified, and are actually forms of M. aquatica  

 

 

 

  

Julias sweet citrus, one of the new hybrid mints from the New World

 

 

 

 

 

 

chocolate mint.... A mystery mint that some people say does not exist....smell it yourself and make up your own mind!!!!

 

 

Morrocan mint ........this variety comes all the way from sunny ......Kent!!!!

Its never even been abroad ...never mind visited Morroco!!!!

To add to the confusion we have another Morrocan mint that does come from Morrocco. 

(The first was developed for a famous brand of tea...the second grew naturally in Morrocco)   

    

 

swiss mint  A good general purpose mint

 

 

                                                                      tashkent mint

Some one said this was Delia Smiths favourite (I'm not sure of the truth of that ),

If it is I know a few others that could change her mind!!!!
