Mentha suaveolens Apple Mint

 

 

Apple Mint Stem Segment

A container with a large surface area helps mint to grow abundantly. Mints grown in five to six hours of sun develop better color and flavor. In hot summer areas, late afternoon shade helps to cut down on the watering chores. They are hardy to zone 5 and will die back to the ground in winter. Cut Apple Mint to the ground in late fall and it will be fresh and crisp in spring. It may need to be divided in the spring. When the mint stops producing heavily, it is time to thin out the roots.

Apple Mint makes a great addition to our  Kitchen Herb Garden Six Pack.
