Mint Apple - Plant

6590- Applemint. Mentha suaveolens

Perennial (hardy in zones 5-9)

Soft gray-green round leaves are downy with a pronounced scent. Its fuzzy leaves and stems have a distinct minty apple taste, and it lends its flavour to applemint jelly and couscous, as well as teas that will calm upset stomach and soothe body and soul. Like most mints, applemint can threaten the garden with too much of a good thing, and in its optimum growing conditions of part shade and moist soil will quickly introduce itself to neighbouring beds and lawns. Plant it in containers, or bottomless buckets sunk into the garden bed to control its tendency to roam. Applemint is untroubled by pests in general and considered repellent of bothersome insects in the mixed border. Keep applemint growing anywhere you want to enjoy its sweet fruity scent, and close to the kitchen to easily enjoy the wonderful flavour it adds to food.

Safe Seed Pledge

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative. We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds.
