Mint, Jessica’s Sweet Pear (Mentha ssp)

Mint, Jessica’s Sweet Pear

Mint, Jessica’s Sweet Pear is a vigorous, upright mint with aromatic leaves that have a delicate, fruity aroma. This mint also has lilac flowers in summer that are attractive to bees and pollinators.

This mint is a great culinary herb as the leaves blend really well with summer fruit salads, jellies and cordials. Good for garnishing sweet or savoury dishes and for making a tea.

Unlike most mints it is said to be less invasive in the border due to it not producing invasive runners. It will also grow quite happily in containers.
