6597- Pineapple Mint. Mentha suaveolens 'Variegata'

Perennial (hardy in zones 6-9)

Considered one of the most attractive mints, pineapple mint has white streaks that vary with the season, plus a flavour is completely unique, a pineapple taste that combines well with dishes using ham, fruit cups or fruit salads. Dried leaves scent potpourris. Pineapple mint is less invasive than some other varieties but enjoys the same optimum growing conditions of part shade and moist soil. Pineapple mint will grow happily in the shade of trees. Untroubled by pests in general and considered repellent of bothersome insects in the mixed border, perennial in zones 6-9, you can enjoy the best of pineapple mint’s qualities by growing it in pots, or bottomless buckets sunk into the ground. It is well worth the effort, as it is one of the best mints for the kitchen garden.

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.
