Use Chocolate Mint for culinary uses such as mixed in with
teas, breads, desserts or with fresh fruit such as strawberries. Excellent dried or fresh. Chocolate Mint will readily make itself at home in full sun to partial shade in moist soil.
Most gardeners don't have any trouble growing it, but it can get away from you if you are not careful. We recommend growing chocolate mint in a contained area, such as a raised bed, or plant these mints in a large nursery pot in the ground.
Chocolate mint performs best when harvested or cut back at regular intervals. Remove old woody plants to allow newer, younger plants to fill in. Fertilizer during the growing season with an organic fertilizer such as Maxicrop liquid seaweed fertilizer.
Chocolate mint can be dried for use at a later time. Learn all about how to dry fresh mints in our garden article section.
