Chocolate Mint is a form of peppermint (mentha piperita) with some overtones of chocolate. It does not taste like chocolate but more like a mint with chocolate overtones. Nevertheless, it is a wonderful form of peppermint with a rich flavor and scent. Great in beverages, desserts, salads, tea, etc. Hardy in zone 4-11. Like many mints, Chocolate Mint can spread quickly, so you may wish to contain it in a pot. It has particularly handsome green leaves with darker stems in age. Like most mints, they are a great beginner plant, but we cannot guarantee the success of your plants in your garden.
